    Tia Mowry singing?

    Is Tia Mowry headed to the music studio? The actor is slated to star in the new ABC Family movie Mistle-Tones.

    The movie centers around a young woman who wants to join a singing group her mom formed. Tia plays the main character, Holly, who doesn’t get to be a part of the group.

    Instead, she forms her own group and, of course, the two camps end up competing against one another.

    Everyone knows Tia can act, but can “The Game” star carry a tune?

    Fans will have to wait until December to find out. The Mistle-Tones is part of ABC Family’s Christmas movie lineup.
