In Case you were wondering where the voice winner,Leona lewis , had been up to lately since we haven’t heard any new material in a while it seems she may have caught the acting bug.

The wedding of Maddie (Annabel Scholey) and her Italian boyfriend, Raf who happens to be her sister’s(Taylor) old holiday flame and the man she believes to be the love of her life, as reported by Rachel MacGregor on Yahoo! I have not always been a fan of musicals but I will say once I watched the trailer it and it made me a believer! I will be supporting this film looks as though it will be a great way to start the summer off in high spirits! The already critically acclaimed musical is due out in theaters June 27,2014!
Leona Lewis also told the Digital Spy a little bit bout how this role came her way:
“It was something that just came along really, really quickly and this year my intention was to get refocused and re-inspired and it was perfect timing,”
“I have done a lot of theatre work before, but it was quite a few years ago so getting back into that was kind of scary.
“It gave me a chance to learn a lot from the people on set and for a lot of people it was their first movie as well, so we kind of felt the nerves together.”
