The 35-year old Grammy-winning singer will play the role of Stella, a jazz singer who finds herself unwittingly involved in the underbelly of New York City’s music scene.
A&E just released their first clip of Ashanti’s appearance, which features the singer performing a beautiful rendition of Frank Sinatra’s 1956 classic You Make Me Feel So Young.
Ashanti’s last television appearance was in 2013’s Christmas in the City. Before that she appeared in the final season of Army Wives.
Ashanti alluded to several more television appearance on Instagram recently, telling fans she’d soon be guest starring on a mystery BET show, which I believe to be Brandy’s upcoming comedy Zoe Ever After.
In the meantime, fans can support Ashanti via her new single Let’s Go, which is a collaboration with Michelle Obama’s Drink Up campaign.
