Brandy Added to Cast of TV Land’s New Show, ‘Soul Man’

By  | 

Over the weekend, it was revealed that Brandy Norwood will be joining the cast of Soul Man.

The new TV Land series already hired the talented Braxton sisters, Tamar and Trina, but decided to add Brandy to the bunch of singers as well. The cast also includes Cedric the Entertainer and Niecy Nash.

According to the Singersroom magazine, the new television show follows the life of an R&B singer who becomes the pastor of a church. The series will premiere on June 20th despite recent controversy over the title of the show.

Sam Moore, who is considered the “original soul man,” demanded that the TV Land series find another title for their show. In 1966, Moore and Dave Prater released their hit “Soul Man” and it soon became Moore’s moniker.

Executives told Moore that they wouldn’t promote the new title until both sides reached an agreement, but yet the Soul Man series has already been spotted in commercial spots and on the TV Land website.

Cedric the Entertainer, one of the executive producers of the show as well as a cast member, didn’t seem bothered by the dispute but he did express his excitement about adding Brandy to the show.

“Shout out to the beautiful and talented Brandy for stopping through the ‘Soul Man’ tonight,” Cedric said on Sunday.

“I had a ball!! You and Niecy Nash are about to bless the TV world! So happy to know both of you!!” Brandy tweeted about Cedric. Brandy’s role on the new show is yet to be revealed.

    That must mean she’s leaving “The Game”. Just as well….I didn’t like that character at all. Good luck to her though. Looking forward to checking out the new show. Got lots of folks I like on there (Niecy Nash, Cedric,) and the braxtons too!? Can’t Wait!!!!!

    Happy for Brandy and also for the Braxton sisters. These young women all have had their share of struggles in with the spot light shinning on them. I am glad it will be a positive show and one that will bring some joy and laughter into our homes. We have enough garbage to watch.
