The hit cartoon TV show 'Powerpuff Girls' has just made a big move: Not only have they added a fourth girl to the classic crime-fighting trio, but the additional character is black.

South African singer Toya Delazy has been tapped to voice the new character. (Cartoon Network has yet to reveal the name of Delazy's character.)

Delazy took to her Twitter page to show her excitement for landing the role.

Jamie Ondarza, Senior Vice President at Turner Broadcasting in Southern Europe and Africa, said in an interview with NME: ""Toya is definitely a perfect fit as the fourth Powerpuff Girl. She is confident, bubbly, and quirky, all the values that we are familiar with, love, and appreciate. We have a lot of surprises up our sleeves."
