Oh my goodness, but I’m excited today.
You know I LOVED Wicked. Ryan and I saw it when we were in New York and were both blown away. I then ran out and got the Wicked soundtrack and we’ve listened to it lots and lots. The kids know all the songs, too.
Then when Enchanted came out, I thought, “there’s something familiar about that lady who’s playing Nancy”. It didn’t come to me right away until someone mentioned that it was Idina Menzel who played Nancy. Then it came to me. She’s Elphaba! Now, when I saw the show, Idina wasn’t playing Elphaba, but she was the original! The Soundtrack Elphaba! The one we sing along to in the car.
Well, she’s not just a fabulous Broadway star and movie actress, folks. Idina Menzel has a new CD out! Take a listen here:
Her song “Brave” is a great one! We all need to take a turn to be brave? And she has such a powerful and strong voice, I really enjoy listening to her. I’m so excited to listen to the whole album.
And now for the fun part!
The One2One network is generously donating a FREE copy of Idina’s new CD “Stand” and an Idina tote bag to one winner! To enter, you will need to tell me in the comments the first role and show that earned Idina a Tony award nomination (before Wicked). You can look here at her website if you need help answering that question. You can also listen to more song clips there.
From the correct answers, I’ll draw a winner’s name and they will receive this great prize! The contest deadline is August 18th (my anniversary, by the way!). To receive extra entries, you could blog about this contest, or send me and my sweet hubby an anniversary card!
