First there was Vanessa Williams, Toni Braxton, Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams, Usher, Fantasia and now comes Mya. This spring the R&B singer will make her Broadway debut in the long-running revival of Chicago, according to producers. The sexy songstress will lend her vocal talents to the role of Velma Kelly, the cohort of Roxie Hart, played currently by stage veteran Bianca Marroquin. "It's something I always wanted to do; sing, dance, act and tell a story," Mya tells the Associated Press. "It's probably the ultimate complete dream for me." Mya is reportedly going through a strenuous workout plan, which includes cardio, muscle strengthening, and stretching to get ready for her new part. "I have gone through all the material with the show's musical director and everything is suited for my key," she said. "We don't have to do any transposing. It's perfect."

Mya, who also had a small role in the 2002 film adaptation of Chicago, says she has seen the stage show more than a half-dozen times in the last couple of years. Her nine week Broadway run at the Ambassador Theatre begins May 12 and ends July 13.

Now if Christina Milian could just snag a real gig instead of popping up on everyone's red carpet event, she'd be good to go.
