Charlotte's angelic television debut
Charlotte Church is heading off to America for her first TV role
Teenage opera sensation Charlotte Church will be in Los Angeles this week to try her hand at acting.
The 13-year-old Welsh star is set to appear in an episode of the popular American TV series Touched By An Angel.
The show features the adventures of three angels sent to Earth to help depressed or troubled people.
The soprano star will also be appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Show on 29 September.
Teenage soprano Charlotte Church has been invited to sing in America for President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary later this month.
The TV role is just another event in a busy year for the singing star.
White House party
In June she sang Amazing Grace to President Clinton - reportedly the President's favourite song - on a bill with various other artists at the Ford's Theatre in Washington.
Afterwards Charlotte and her parents Maria and James from Llandaff, Cardiff went along to an exclusive White House tea party.
Shel rubbed shoulders with the biggest names in the music industry and presented one of the prizes at the prestigious MTV Music Awards ceremony in New York in August.
Earlier this month she closed the festival at the inaugural children's Proms in the Park at Hyde Park in London.
