As she prepares to film her first major movie role, Ciara remains calm. The hit-making singer, who will star in an adaptation of the gospel musical ''Mama, I Want to Sing!'' isn't nervous - not now, at least.
''I don't want to claim the word 'nervous' at all,'' Ciara, 21, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Friday. ''I'm thinking, 'Ciara's gonna go in, she's gonna go hard, she's gonna challenge herself, she's gonna knock it out.'''
Any butterflies, she says, will arrive closer to the shoot, which begins this month in Baton Rouge, La. For now, she's ''excited more than anything.'' (Starpulse News).
