On making her Broadway debut as Shug Avery in The Color Purple:
“I have butterflies taking on this role, but I like that.  I never second guessed it – I just hopped right in.  She is such a different funky character for me and I was very attached to book and the film.”

On her family enjoying living in New York:
“We love seeing musicals.  We’ve made it to The Lion King and Wicked already.  My son says, ‘Mommy, this feels like home!”

How she takes care of her voice:
“Plenty of rest, and I drink lots of warm water with lemon and honey.”
