Grammy-award winning Alicia Keys invading the small screen. The singer will guest star in a special episode of Nick, Jr.'s cartoon "The Backyardigans" premiering Oct. 9 at 10:30 a.m. (ET/PT).
Keys is set to star as the animated "Mommy Martian" along with her niece Shakyra Lipscomb, who plays baby "Martian Boinga", on an episode titled "Mission to Mars." On top of that, Keys will also contribute the original song "Almost Everything Is Boinga Here" to the episode.
On her task, Keys commented "After speaking with kids who said they loved 'The Backyardigans,' I knew this would be a great project for me to get involved in. Working alongside my niece was so much fun and the people at Nick Jr. helped to make it a great experience. I can't wait to see it all put together to make one great episode."
