Covering her face with a black face mask in keeping with pandemic protocol, the songstress grinned from ear-to-ear as she explored the area’s property offerings. 

On Friday, it was announced that the Bad Boys singer had been picked to play the Narrator in the musical Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Not only does her casting marks Alexandra’s London Palladium debut, but it is also the first time a black performer has taken on the role.

Alexandra has never seen the show, but knows the music well.

She told Daily Mail’s Baz Bamigboye earlier this week: ‘I’m going to bring a soulful vibe to it, and just be me.’

She admitted to being hesitant when producer Michael Harrison approached her — even though the two have worked together in the past, when she headlined The Bodyguard and Sister Act.

‘I asked if a black woman had ever done it before,’ she explained.

Alexandra also revealed that she was inspired to take on the role by her late mother, singer and Soul II Sould Melissa Bell, who passed away in 2017.

Alexandra said she felt certain her mum would have told her to haul herself ‘onto that stage’.
