    The name on everybody's lips? Brandy!

    By popular demand, Brandy Norwood has extended her run as Roxie Hart in Broadway’s long-running revival of Kander & Ebb’s “Chicago.”

    The Grammy-winning singer, who originally signed on for an eight-week limited engagement in “Chicago” from April 28 through June 21, will now remain with the production through Aug. 2 at the Ambassador Theatre.

    Norwood won’t be in the show, however, for performances on June 22-23 and June 27-28, due to a scheduling conflict.

    In addition to selling more than 40 million albums worldwide, Norwood is also an accomplished actress. She spent six seasons in the title role of the hit sitcom “Moesha,” and was recently awarded a 2014 NAACP Image Award for her role as Chardonnay on BET’s “The Game.”

    “Chicago” marks Norwood’s Broadway debut -- though it isn’t her first musical. She starred opposite Whitney Houston in the 1997 TV adaptation of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella.”
