Alexandra Burke Joins ‘The BodyGuard’

X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke has been confirmed to replace UK soul singer Beverley Knight in the hit West End musical ‘The Bodyguard’ this coming June.

The ‘Bad Boys‘ singer was quick to share her good news stating:

“I couldn’t be more excited about joining the cast of The Bodyguard and to play the iconic role of Rachel Marron will be a dream come true. I am a massive Whitney Houston fan so to be given the opportunity to play a role made famous by her every night will be a real privilege.  I start rehearsals very soon with my fellow cast mates and the brilliant creative team and, with a little trepidation, I am looking forward to our first performance in June.”

The musical has quickly become one of London’s most popular shows since it opened in December 2012 where it initially had U.S. soul musician Heather Headley in the title role.

The casting of Alexandra Burke will come as a welcome surprise to her fans after the disappointing sales of her 2012 album ‘Heartbreak on Hold’.

Last year she signed up to perform Billie Holiday songs in a Lady Sings the Blues production at London’s Royal Albert Hall, but plans were later scrapped.

Since then she has quietly been working on a follow up album and has been signed to a U.S. management deal with hopes of expanding her international career later this year.

Alexandra’s first Bodyguard show starts from June 2nd and she will remain with the production until August 30th.
