Based on the smash-hit film, the award-winning musical “The Bodyguard” will star Grammy Award nominee and R&B powerhouse Deborah Cox Oct. 17-22 at Cobb Great Hall Wharton Center for the Performing Arts, 750 E. West Shaw Lane in East Lansing. Former Secret Service agent-turned-bodyguard Frank Farmer 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. A breathtakingly romantic thriller, “The Bodyguard” features a host of irresistible classics including “Queen of the Night,” “So Emotional,” “One Moment in Time,” “Saving All My Love,” “Run to You,” “I Have Nothing,” “I Wanna Dance with Somebody,” and one of the most popular songs of all time, “I Will Always Love You.” Broadway Records and Deco Recording Group released the album, “Deborah Cox: I Will Always Love You,” digitally and in stores in March. The album is available on http://www.BroadwayRecords.com and http://www.Amazon.com. “I’ve always been a fan of the songs in the movie so it has been a dream to perform them on stage every night,” said Cox. “This project was born out of continuous requests from my fans and people who have seen me in the show. They wanted to have something with me singing these songs so I listened and went to work putting this EP together.” Tickets start at $32 for the performance during various showtimes. There will be an AfterChat following the Oct. 19 performance.
