Gabrielle Union Praises Audra McDonald And Fans Are In Tears
Gabrielle Union praised a special lady and she managed to have her fans extremely emotional with the message that she shared. Check out the post that she dropped on her IG.
'Today’s #WCW is literally a national treasure and the most generous, kind woman you can meet, @audramcdonald. Superstar is an understatement – Audra’s versatility as an actress and singer has landed her to win multiple awards. Including being the winner of record breaking SIX Tony Awards, TWO Grammy’s AND an Emmy award. In 2015 she was named one of TIME’S 100 most influential people and President Obama himself gave her the Nation Medal of Arts. Her musical talents began ever since she was a child, eventually training her voice at Julliard and shortly after graduating went on to win her first Tony Award for Best Performance in a Musical for “Carousel.” ' she began her message.
She continued and said: 'And the Tony’s didn’t stop there! In 1996 she won another Tony for Broadway’s “Master Class” and again in ’98 for “Ragtime.” All before she was 30-years-old, Audra managed to win three Tony Awards. By 2014, Audra had five Tony Awards under her belt and snagged her sixth one after her outstanding performance as Billie Holiday in “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill.” While clearly a lover for theatre, Audra also holds a powerful place in the Opera. In 2006, she made her debut at Houston’s Grand Opera and in 2007 she starred alongside Patti LuPone at the Los Angeles Opera performing in “Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny.” This performance ended up winning Audra not one but TWO Grammy’s for Best Opera Recording and Best Classical Album.'
Gaby also said: 'Off the Broadway stage, Audra’s talents have been seen on screen at home and at the box office. Starring in televisions shows like “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Mister Sterling,” “The Bedford Diares,” “Private Practice,” and most recently @hbomax @gildedagehbo – the list truly goes on and on. Aside from her many, many talents this woman also has a heart of gold. She is an advocate for equal rights, LGBTQ causes and underprivileged youth. For her ongoing contribution helping homeless young people across the country, Audra was honored in 2017 as one of Variety’s “Power of Women” and received the Beacon of Hope award the following year. A mother, a wife, an advocate, singer, actress — let us lift her up in the light of goodness and hold her there.'
Somoene said: 'I’ve been spellbound by her since I saw her sing in Disney’s TV version of “Annie” (1999).'
A commenter psoted this: 'Just Grand and beautiful! Thank you for shining the light on Ms. McDonald.'
