With director Spike Lee of "Undisputed Truth," Tyson pretends to sing during a news conference announcing a six-night engagement on Broadway at the end of July 2012.

"I can only do the play on the pretense of I have a script, so I don't take it personally. Spike wanted me to do it one day without the script, and I couldn't do it. Four or five minutes into it, I was crying; I can't do it without a script. It's personal. I can't do it."
