Posted Thursday February 20, 2014 3:48 PM GMT

She has a diverse resume with experience that ranges from Top 40 radio to the Miss America pageant, and Vanessa Williams' latest project takes her to The Great White Way.

The “Ugly Betty” babe will serve as a guest vocalist in the Broadway production of “After Midnight,” based on the Cotton Club years of Duke Ellington.

Vanessa gushed, "It's an honor to jump in. It's a well-oiled machine, up and running and I think it'll be a perfect fit. The people that know me know what I bring. I love the music and it's our history. This is the music of African-Americans in New York."

Williams previously appeared in “Kiss of the Spider-Woman,” “The Trip to Bountiful,” “Sondheim on Sondheim” and “Into The Woods,” so she’s no stranger to the stage.
