Adrienne Warren is bringing her acclaimed London portrayal of Tina Turner to Broadway.
And her recording of "River Deep, Mountain High" has been released as the first single from Tina: The Musical original cast album.
A 31-year-old native of Virginia, Warren made her Broadway debut in 2012's Bring It On . Four years later, she was nominated for a Tony for Shuffle Along. She's appeared in such TV series as Blue Bloods , Orange Is the New Black and Quantico .
The real Turner tweets, "I am thrilled that Adrienne has picked up the mantle and not only risen to the challenge but made this moment [of recording 'River Deep, Mountain High'] one of my very favorites in the musical. It is so right that this is the first single to be released from our cast album. She makes me very proud."
Tina: The Musical is scheduled to open on Broadway this fall.
