Chris Daughtry Talks Role in 'The Passion' Musical

(Radio.com) When Chris Daughtry was in town with his namesake band Daughtry recently, he had a chance to speak with The Morning MIX about his upcoming role in the FOX live musical event The Passion.

To be shot live in New Orleans, hosted and narrated by Tyler Perry, The Passion will recount the last hours of the life of Jesus Christ through verses of the Bible as well as popular song. It's an all-star cast with Jencarlos Canela as Jesus, Daughtry as Judas, Seal as Pontius Pilate, Prince Royce as Peter, and Trisha Yearwood as Mary.

The musical is set to have Daughtry performing "Bring Me To Life," originally recorded by Evanescence and Imagine Dragons' "Demons" as a duet with Jencarlos.

But when asked about his involvement in the production Daughtry revealed, "I'm not a musical guy," noting that it was, if nothing else, definitely a great sound bite.

"I'm not a big fan of musicals," he said, adding, "I do remember however seeing Les Mis with Hugh Jackman [and] Anne Hathaway, and I just thought that was an extremely powerful performance and you kind of forget that they're singing and that it's a musical. And I was kind of hopin' to go for something like that."

And is he nervous about it all? "Hell yeah," he exclaimed. Read more here.
