“Winning was surreal, a totally out-of-body experience…I thought I would suddenly feel different—that I would finally figure out how to organize my underwear drawer. I’m grateful and blown away by it all, but I’m still me. I still have work to do…”—Audra McDonald, ESSENCE
ESSENCE's April issue focuses on "Careers" and the impeccable Audra McDonald graces the cover. The record- breaking six time Tony Award winner and Broadway starlet shares how following her passion saved her life- literally. Aside from racking up awards, Audra also stars in HBO's broadcast of Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill. The A Raisin in the Sun star can also be seen on Broadway this season in Shuffle Along.
The “Careers” issue covered by Audra McDonald (the only person to win all four Tony Awards acting categories) will be available April 18th on newsstand nationwide. Make sure you grab a copy for your favorite starlet!
