Teen star Hilary Duff is getting her vocal chords warmed up - she's signed up to appear in two music specials for American TV's WB network.

Duff - who recently ended her association with the Disney corporation - will appear in a programme to mark her sixteenth birthday on 28 September (03), as well as a Christmas (DEC03) special with a host of as yet unnamed special guests.

WB ENTERTAINMENT President JORDAN LEVIN gushes, "We are thrilled to be starting a relationship with the Duff family and hope this is the beginning of a long alliance."
