The singer will play a waitress in the movie Tennessee

Mariah Carey doesn't give up – five years after the publicized flop of her first foray into movies with the film Glitter the singer will return to try the role of a waitress in the film Tennessee, to be directed by Lee Daniels.

“I feel flattered that Lee Daniels called me. He produced The Woodsman and Monster's Ball,” Carey pointed out in an interview with Time magazine where she admitted that Daniels took a risk in choosing her. “He likes taking risks. Obviously, for many people it would be a risk. But he never saw Glitter,” she clarified.

With this new project, the singer intends to add one more success to her resounding return. After several years of being outside the artistic environment, her disc The Emancipation of Mimi became the best-seller album of 2005. Let's see if the run of good luck stays with her in the movies.
