Actress and soprano Audra McDonald recently starred in Broadway's revival of Porgy And Bess. Now, she's back with her first solo album in seven years, Go Back Home, which features McDonald on songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein and Stephen Sondheim, among others. And while the record showcases McDonald both backed by lush strings and sparer, bare-bones arrangements, it's her distinctive voice that shines throughout.

Set List

  • "Go Back Home"
  • "Baltimore"
  • "Make Someone Happy"
