Audra McDonald has signed on as the official host of LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER on PBS. The acclaimed singer/actress, winner of five Tony Awards and two Grammys, will host seven broadcasts from December 2012 through Spring 2013. Below, check out a just-released video in which the talented actress chats about her long-time admiration for the series.
McDonald said, "I grew up watching Live From Lincoln Center and Beverly Sills, the great soprano who used to regularly host the series, was such an inspiration to me.
Ever since I moved to New York to attend The Juilliard School, I've spent so much of my life at Lincoln Center that I consider it my home away from home. Needless to say, I was incredibly honored when Live From Lincoln Center invited me to become the host for this season."
