Sarah Brightman has announced she will perform a song while travelling in space.

The singer will embark on her journey on September 01, before spending 10 days at the International Space Station.

Brightman has been working with former husband Andrew Lloyd Webber to find a song she can perform while aboard the station, and she said it will be a very "different" experience.

She said: "To sing in microgravity is a very different thing to singing down here. We use the Earth to ground ourselves when we sing and the air around us.

"This is going to be very different. I'm trying to find a piece that is beautiful and simple in its message, as well as not complicated to sing."

Brightman is reported to be paying around £34 million to become the eighth space tourist, where she will be part of a three-person crew travelling to the International Space Station.

The star is currently training for the trip at Star City near Moscow.
