“”For devastating theatrical impact, it's hard to imagine any hurricane matching the tempest that is the extraordinary Audra McDonald.”” New York Times Unparalleled in the breadth and versatility of her artistry as both a singer and an actress, Audra McDonald has earned five Tony AwardsÂ®, two Grammy AwardsÂ®, and a long list of other accolades as one of today's most highly regarded performers. Blessed with a luminous soprano and an incomparable gift for dramatic truth-telling, she is equally at home on Broadway and opera stages as in roles on film and television.
Most recently the star of the Tony Award-winning Broadway revival of The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess in New York and featured on the ABC television series Private Practice, McDonald's resume of acclaimed Broadway performances also includes Carousel, Master Class, Ragtime, A Raisin in the Sun, The Secret Garden, and 110 in the Shade.
In addition to her theatrical work, she maintains a major career as a concert and recording artist, regularly appearing on the great stages of the world, including an appearance as the featured guest soloist with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square in December 2004.
