K.Michelle is taking the next step in her career by modifying  her award-winning album The Rebellious Soul into a musical.

Let that marinate.

In a joint collaboration with VH1 and Atlantic Records, Rebellious Soul: The Musical is a story about a stripper’s journey in love, set to to the vocals of the Tennessee singer.

“I get bored easily if I’m not challenged,” said K. Michelle to theGrio.com’s Kyle Harvey. “This was a project we pitched to VH1 and Atlantic, and they were down.”

It should be noted that Rebellious Soul was directed by Emmy Award-winning actor and producer Idris Elba.

Elba’s accomplishments speak for themselves, and he gave K. Michelle the great advice to succeed on stage.

“He just said, ‘bring her some liquor and let her do her thing,” Michelle recalled.
