The singer is expected to play herself in the story of how she overcame sexual abuse, poverty and illiteracy to win the Fox TV talent competition's third season, create a double platinum album and grab four 2006 Grammy nominations, The New York Post reported Thursday.

Barrino released a memoir last year called "Life is Not a Fairy Tale" and revealed she was functionally illiterate and working with tutors to improve her skills.
