Opera singer Deborah Voigt has inked a deal with HarperCollins for her memoir; the current working title for the book is True Confessions of a Down to Earth Diva.
The autobiography is slated for a 2013 release. Publisher Jonathan Burnham negotiated the deal with Inkwell Management literary agent Kim Witherspoon.
Here’s more from the release: “Voigt is on the roll of her life after finally conquering her inner demons, the least of which perhaps was her very obvious addiction to food and emotional eating. Seven years ago, Voigt was infamously catapulted into a state of shame by the mainstream media when it was revealed that she had been fired by the Royal Opera House in London for literally being too fat to fit into a little black dress that she was expected to wear as part of her starring role as Ariadne at Covent Garden.”
