London: Singer Jessie J, who suffered a stroke when she was 18, is writing a feel-good musical. She wants the show to inspire youngsters who wish to achieve their dreams.

Currently seen as a mentor on US-based reality show ‘The Voice’, Jessie J believes the tough love of one of her teachers helped her become a star, and insists she wants to do the same for her contestants on the show, reports contactmusic.com.

"I would love to do musicals. That is what I trained in. I`ve started writing one but it`s kind of been put to the side," she told radio.com.

"It`s about life and feeling good. It`s about time there`s something on stage that kids can go to and come out thinking they can take on the world and do something with their life if they are in a bad place," she said while explaining the script.
