CONGRATS to award winning vocalist, reality star and entrepreneur K. Michelle. She will appear on BET’s new series American Soul. The Love and Hip Hop diva posted the big news on social media following tonight’s Soul Train Awards:
“Thank you @jessecollinsent and @bet This has been a rough year for me. I’m back to working and I thank you guys for the opportunity to show the world my acting skills. I’m so focused on being the best actress/tv host possible! This new show is EVERYTHING! Y’all are going to love it.”
K. Michelle will be acting and singing in the episode and also got a chance to work with Grammy-winning music legend Babyface.
American Soul is the untold story of the struggle to make the dream of Soul Train come true. Inspired by the personal trials and professional successes of a young, ambitious and troubled impresario Don Cornelius, the 70s period drama is an unflinching look at the entrepreneur, his Soul Train dancers, and musicians set against the backdrop of a cutthroat Hollywood – how they work, play, rise and fall.
The series also stars Kelly Price, Jason Dirden, Iantha Richardson, Christopher Jefferson, Katlyn Nichol, Jelani Winston and Sinqua Walls as Don Cornelius.
American Soul airs this February on BET.
