A Marvelous Bridge

Audra McDonald creates a lush emotional landscape for each song that keeps you longing for more. I was especially taken with her cover of John Mayer’s “My Stupid Mouth” and her rendition of “Tom Cat Goodbye”. I have been an avid Audra McDonald fan since she surfaced on the theatre scene years ago and have been cherishing her cast and solo albums. I was a little weary when finding out that the track list of this current album contains mostly non-theatre songs, but after listening to Build a Bridge just once I was thrilled and moved by every song.

Audra was extraordinary in high school too...

I went to high school with Audra at Roosevelt in Fresno---and all I can say is that we were blessed with her voice at every assembly, school play and auxilary performance. Now that she's a 4-time Tony award winner I think back on how lucky I was to hear her for free--and to be a part of the audience she honed her early skills on. You just knew in your bones---that were electrified every time she shared her gift--that she was going to make it big. Audra---from a fellow RPAM-ie---WE ARE SO PROUD !!!!


Audra McDonald continues to prove the value of melody and lyrics. She actually sings the songs instead of just running through the motions in some sort of contrived effort to prove her ability. She effortlessly lets every song fly with its own story, character and emotion. In the process, her extraordinary vocal instrument stands so far above the over extended voices we hear on a daily basis. I think Audra McDonald should be required listening. She conitnues to explore, grow and challenge her audience. It's a wonderful journey.
