NEW YORK (AP) — Mya, who was to have made her Broadway debut next month as Velma Kelly in "Chicago," has broken her left foot and will postpone her engagement in the show, producer Barry Weissler announced Tuesday.
"In the theater industry, we are sometimes forced to deal with circumstances beyond our control," Weissler said. "But speaking for the entire `Chicago' creative team, we all wish her a speedy recovery and look forward to experiencing her portrayal of Velma Kelly as soon as possible."
Mya was to have begun her nine-week engagement in the Kander and Ebb musical on May 12. No other details about what happened were available.
Earlier this year, the woman who is known for such hits as "Case of the Ex," "Ghetto Superstar" and "Lady Marmalade," told The Associated Press that appearing in "Chicago" was "something I always wanted to do — sing, dance, act and tell a story. It's probably the ultimate complete dream for me."
No word yet on who will replace Mya as Velma, Roxie Hart's cohort in show-biz razzle-dazzle. The role currently is being played by Brenda Braxton.
She'll be ok, she will be back up and running in no time.
SHE STILL GOOD...ALL GOOD

Man this is sad. Who is she again? Oh, I remember Mya. I thought she was dead, though. My fault, I was thinking about Romeo from The Steve Harvey Show (R.I.P. Stanley)
Different year same sh*t!!!!!!
Mya, I wish you the best ...
thats too bad...she'll be aight
she's fine. If there is anything i hate and that's to see a sad pretty girl
not on the set of "secret talents of the stars" cuz that show was pulled after airing one episode. in fact, they were ready to pull the show off the air after the first break. why she would agree to that show is astounding to me.
...prolly tripped ova her nose.
And didn't she just get lypo in her ankles??
i hope she gets better, good luck mya!!!!!!!!
She look like she got some good kitty kat.
Dayum....poor Mya just can't catch a break....

MediaTakeOut ya'll are wrong for the SNAP!!! caption real a-holes.
What happened to her cd that was suppose to come out?

I hope she recovers quickly because that is a great opportunity for her. Lately her music career has been in the toilet, so this should be a nice change. I love Mya though-I would love for her to release another album soon.
I,I,I, keep on falling... oh wait that's Alicia.
Just when she found a job...***.
i hope mya recovers soon
idk what happened to her career

MYA NEEDS TO TAKE HER DEPRESSING A$$ AND SIT IN THE CORNER INDIAN STYLE AND THINK....SHE MAKES ME SOO SICK
I hope she gets better. I wish I could see her on Broadway when she comes back on stage. She is a good dancer I love her tap dancing. It's fun. She is a good singer too.
MYA DONT SING ANYMORE???.....MYSPACE.COM/DOLOMITE
That dude in the back is mad ***! LMAO
Not *** but...She used to be very hot with an amazing a$$...what went wrong??? What does she do nowadays???
@Qdoggball11...LOL so true...
Get a replacement, no one will notice.
Poor Mya! GET BETTER
When they told her "break a leg" I guess she took it literally. I guess she's new to the Broadway lingo.
Poor girl it seems as if she aint having no good luck, and when u aint having good luck you always gotta look back and think of somethings u might have done that could have karma bitting u in the ***. Idk i just feel bad that she seems to be having bad luck maybe its her time to struggle and god will lift her up at the right time
I think she seems really down to earth. I hope she gets better and can deal with the downtime. But, on another note, why are so many dumb azz readers on here saying they can't stand her and etc "excuse me" do you know her? Why, do black women have to hate on eachother like this?
Get better Mya cause we know you got bills to pay like the rest of us.
I REALLY LOVE THIS WOMAN!
MYA'S A GREAT PROFORMER ALL AROUND STILL, BUT SHE JUST NEEDS THAT MANAGEMENT BACKING HER UP SO SHE COULD REALLY DO HER THING
happy birthdat carolinagirl, mya, get better, i still luv ya.
