London (ANI): Singer Mariah Carey's extraordinary life is to be
turned into a Broadway musical and she wants Leona Lewis to play
her. The American crooner has been in talks about a forthcoming
musical with Broadway bosses for months. However, the 'Hero'
hitmaker gave the show the green light only after discussing with
hubby Nick Cannon on their Christmas holiday in Aspen.
"Mariah's not sure if she'll star in it herself. If she doesn't,
names being tossed around include High School Musical star Vanessa
Hudgens and Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria. But Mariah secretly
likes the idea of Leona Lewis playing her," The Mirror quoted an
insider as saying.
added: "Not only is she exotic, she?s the only one who they reckon
would be able to tackle Mariah's eight-octave vocal range." A
spokeswoman for the diva confirmed: "Mariah is in talks for a
Broadway musical to be made about her life in 2009."
