Soprano Sarah postpones lift-off

British singer Sarah Brightman (54) has postponed her trip to the International Space Station.

She was due to blast off in a Russian Soyuz rocket on a tourist flight on September 1.

In March she revealed she was working with composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, her ex-husband, on a song to sing in space.

But the soprano said she was setting the plans aside, for "personal family reasons".
