LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Ne-Yo is coming closer to Pine Valley.
The singer-songwriter will perform his songs "Closer" and "Stop This World" during an "All My Children" guest stint set to air May 21 and May 22. Ne-Yo will appear on the ABC daytime soap during the long anticipated second wedding of Angie and Jesse Hubbard, the supercouple played by Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams.
Of course, "All My Children" being "All My Children," the wedding will not go according to plan. Following the Grammy winner's performance at the reception, the bride will be kidnapped and taken away on a helicopter. The characters of Angie and Jesse Hubbard recently reunited after a 20-year absence following Jesse's presumed death.
Ne-Yo, whose real name is Shaffer C. Smith, is no stranger to drama. The Grammy winner was arrested in suburban Atlanta for reckless driving earlier this year. Cobb County police spokeswoman Cassie Reece said he was driving at speeds that exceeded 100 mph.
