X Factor's Brenda Edwards star's in the West End musical 'We Will Rock You'
Having wowed the audiences with her powerhouse performances as Killer Queen in the recent touring production of Queen and Ben Elton’s “We Will Rock you”, the former X Factor finalist Brenda Edwards is joining the West End production of the award winning show.
She will replace Mazz Murray who is taking a break to have a baby. Brenda makes her first appearance with the London production staged at the Dominion Theatre on Monday, 21 June. She joins the cast for a strictly limited ten week season before embarking on a lengthy British and international tour of the show, kicking off in Manchester in December 2010.
Show co-creator Brian May said – “Brenda is irrepressible, scary, funny, and a killer singer. The lot! … I have no doubt she will Rock the Dominion.” Having been the final woman in X Factor 2005, Brenda Edwards became much sought after by West End casters. She first performed in 'Chicago The Musical' followed by a role in “Carmen Jones”. Playing high profile concerts as headliner or special guest has ensured her growing popularity. Thus proving you don’t have to win X Factor to enjoy a successful career! 'We Will Rock You' is now in its 9th year and has played before over four million people. A review of the show with Brenda Edwards will be featured shortly.
