Ahead of one show, the singer dedicated her performance to her trans friend and spoke in solidarity to the trans community in an emotional video.

“Particularly my trans friends who right now find life really really tough, I’ll always be a big sister,” Knight said in the clip which she posted on Twitter.

The musical is based on the iconic movie of the same name and is a tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music tells the hilarious story of the disco diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder.

Under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she won’t be found – a convent.

Disguised as a nun and under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.

It features songs including “Spread the Love Around”, “Raise Your Voice” and “Sunday Morning Fever” to name a few.

The Olivier and Tony Award-nominated musical features original music by Oscar winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Glenn Slater and book by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner.
