NEW YORK (AP) — Starring on Broadway in "Chicago" has turned into a fountain of youth for Brandy Norwood.

The Grammy-winner said last week that she has more life in her than she's had in a long time. She says she feels 15 again, adding, "My kid is wide awake. Baby Brandy is up and ready to go."

The singer of hits like "I Wanna Be Down" and "The Boy Is Mine" as well as the star of the '90s sitcom "Moesha" started an 8-week stint in the sexy musical, which marks her professional stage debut.

One of those most impressed was her 12-year-old daughter, Sy'ra, who told her, "Mommy, you were phenomenal."

The singer adds, "It was as if she had never seen me in that way."
