Worship leader turned actress, Naomi Scott set to play Princess Jasmine in the Disney live -action remake of ‘Aladdin’
Naomi’s most recent role was Kimberly Hart, AKA the Pink Ranger, in the 2017 remake of Power Rangers.
Relevant reports that Naomi Scott is not only an actress, but a recording artist and has been a worship leader at her church, so she got the pipes to sing too.
In an interview back in April with HypeBae, Scott explained how important faith and church have been in her life:
“God is the ultimate creative force. Growing up in the Church fostered an inner spirituality that also introduced me to the concept of music having a deeper meaning. There has always been a connection between my faith, and realizing that music can have a soul and purpose, which has ultimately affected the way I approach the art. Listening to soulful vocalists like Mary Mary and Kim Burrell; playing the piano, and leading worship has directly shaping my artistry.”
