Audra McDonald Tony Awards 2014
Last night’s 68th Annual Tony Awards was filled with great performances and theatrics as always including a musical number by Neil Patrick Harris and a terrific trio by the divas: Fantasia, Patti LaBelle, and Gladys Knight. Today’s spotlight however is on Audra McDonald. Singer and actress Audra McDonald walked away last night with her sixth Tony Award making Tony Award history not once but TWICE! A great night for this 43 year old performer! She is not only the first person to win a Tony in each of the four acting categories but also holds the most Tony Awards as an actress for these categories topping close contenders Julie Harris and Angela Lansburry. Her role as Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill landed her this sixth Tony but let’s not forget her other 5 Tony’s for “The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess," "Carousel," "Master Class," "Ragtime" and "A Raisin in the Sun” as well as the 2 Grammy’s she has under her belt! In her acceptance speech she thanked the legends that paved the way before her, her deceased parents for not “medicating their hyperactive child”, and her husband and children. Congratulations on the win Ms. McDonald!
