Sarah Brightman sent out the following word that she plans to launch on a future orbital spaceflight mission to the International Space Station (ISS) in partnership with Space Adventures, Ltd., the world's leading private space experiences company.

Brightman will be part of a three-person crew travelling to the International Space Station on board a Soyuz rocket. Once on the ISS she will orbit the earth 16 times daily and intends to become the first professional musician to sing from space. The final scheduling of her trip to the space station will be determined by Roscosmos and the ISS partners in the coming months.

"We are very enthusiastic to announce Sarah Brightman 's desire to launch to space. I have deep admiration for Sarah, not only for her well deserved title of being the world's best-selling soprano, but for the young girl who was inspired by Yuri Gagarin and Neil Armstrong to reach for her own star. We look forward to working with her to make her dream a reality," said Eric Anderson, Chairman of Space Adventures, Ltd.

"I am pleased to announce that Sarah Brightman has been selected to participate in our spaceflight training program. This past July, Ms. Brightman completed and passed all of the required medical and physical evaluations; she's fit and mentally prepared for our spaceflight training program. We will work closely with Space Adventures in supporting Ms. Brightman's spaceflight candidacy," said Alexey Krasnov, Head of Piloted Programs Department.

Throughout the next several months, Brightman will share pictures and experiences via her website.
