And the “beet” goes on for Kellie Pickler as the singer lends her unmistakable voice to a new movie in the 'VeggieTales' series, Beauty and the Beet. Kellie voices the character of Mirabelle, the sweet-potato lead singer of a family band that overcomes its share of challenges. The theme of the movie is a twist on the classic Beauty and the Beast fairy tale.

Kellie performs seven original songs in the movie, which will be included on a companion CD that also features Kellie’s rendition of the Christmas standard “Deck the Halls.” The holiday album will be released to coincide with the DVD, Oct 14th.
