Singer Deborah Cox famous for the hit single "Nobody's Suppose To Be Here" will be playing Josephine Baker in the upcoming Broadway musical.

According to a press release, the musical “will revolve around Baker’s stint as the star of the Folies Bergere in Paris between 1939-45, her scandalous affair with Swedish Crown Prince Gustav VI, and her heroic service in the French Resistance during World War II.”

“Josephine” will be directed and produced by Tony Award-winner Kenneth Waissman. The musical will premiere sometime in April.

Deborah Cox will be the second actress to play Josephine Baker. Legendary actress Lynn Whitfield played the late singer, dancer and actress in a HBO filmed aired in 1991.
