Alexandra Burke brings The Bodyguard back to Birmingham

Actress and singer, Alexandra Burke will return to the starring role of Rachel Marron in the forthcoming tour of the 'The Bodyguard', which visits The Alexandra Theatre from Tuesday 21st January.

The singer's new stint in the show follows her triumphant run in both the West End and the subsequent sell out 2015/2016 tour. She first rose to fame after winning the fifth series of The X Factor and her debut number one single Hallelujah sold over one million copies in the UK, a first for a British female soloist.

She most recently appeared as ‘Svetlana’ in Chess at the London Coliseum and Roxie Hart in Chicago at the Phoenix Theatre.

Based on Lawrence Kasdan’s 1992 Oscar nominated Warner Bros. movie starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner, the story follows former Secret Service agent turned bodyguard, Frank Farmer, who is hired to protect superstar Rachel Marron from an unknown stalker. Each expects to be in charge; what they don’t expect is to fall in love.

The production features a host of irresistible classics from Whintey Houston's back catalogue, including Queen of the Night, So Emotional and one of the biggest hit songs of all time; I Will Always Love You.
