LONDON, March 10. /TASS/. British singer Sarah Brightman who is set to blast off for a ten-day space journey in September said on Tuesday she is working to find a song to perform from the International Space Station.
"We're trying to work this out at the moment, we're working on the music at the moment", Brightman told a news conference in London before returning to Russia where she will resume her pre-flight training at the Gagarin center near Moscow.
The Phantom of the Opera star said she is trying to find "a song that suits the idea of space."
Brightman, 54, announced her plans to sing on board the station to an accompaniment of an orchestra from Earth in mid-January.
Brightman's flight is scheduled for September 1-11, 2015. She will be accompanied by Russian cosmonaut Sergey Volkov and European Space Agency astronaut Andreas Mogensen.
The singer said music by great Russian composer Sergey Rachmaninoff helped her learn Russian, which is included in her pre-flight program.
Brightman said she had been learning Russian for two months only and expressed hope her skills would improve by September.
When the singer reaches the ISS, she will become the eighth space tourist in the world paying around $52 million for the journey.
