Although D.Woods found out about the reported reunion of her former group the same time most Danity Kane fans did, she’s not holding that against them.
“If they reach out, then we’ll figure out how to make it work,” she told Sister 2 Sister. “I have no idea what their plans are.”
The news was unexpected, but at the same time, D. said the way things ended definitely left things open for a second try.
“Because of the way that it happened, there were always questions about it from fans. It was never totally out of my imagination, but everything happens in its own time,” said D., who clarified that their personal relationships are pretty much the same as when DK lovers last saw them together.
Though she’s out of the loop with her former band mates, D.Woods hasn’t been sitting at home watching reruns of “Making the Band.” She’s currently starring in the play Rebirth alongside Q. Parker, Nephew Tommy and Lynn Whitfield. S2S Publisher Jamie Foster Brown has a role in the production, too.
“Rebirth is a story about faith vs. religion and spiritual freedom,” said D., who plays Layla. The main character, played by Q., “discovers the ‘true faith,’ but is persecuted in his effort to spread the good news. It relates to what we see in the world today.”
There are also “cool multi-media aspects” to the “very interactive” production, set in the year 2136.
Though most know her for her vocal ability, D.Woods said acting is nothing new for her.
“I grew up in theater since I was 3-years-old,” she said. “I’m a theater kid. The majority of my life, I’ve been in somebody’s rehearsal. I love it.”
She’s also working on new music that she described as “turnt up.”
“It’s definitely high energy. Being a solo artist, I’m able to explore a lot of different shades of my personality. I got into the different colors of who I am as an artist,” said D. whose plate is currently full.
“I’m definitely committed to these projects that I’m doing… I don’t want to slight any one project because that’s not fair to myself, and that’s not fair to them as a group,” she said of her possible return to Danity Kane. “If I commit to something, I’m going to commit 200 percent.”
