Fans and newcomers alike won’t be disappointed with actress/singer/songwriter Idina Menzel’s powerhouse voice and effervescent stage presence. Tony Award winner Menzel was featured in "Rent" and "Wicked," two of the best-selling musical cast recordings of all time. Catch her in this special episode of Soundstage, taped in New York City inside the Rose Hall at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Throughout the show Idina reveals her quirky personality, maintaining a truly personal connection with the audience by sharing stories of her upbringing, early career and lyrics before launching into songs off her third album, I Stand. In this rich and vibrant evening, Idina performs “Better To Have Loved,” “My Own Worst Enemy” and “Brave.” Critically-acclaimed saxophonist Ravi Coltrane contributes to her signature sound alongside strings on “Perfume and Promises,” and “Gorgeous” yields an uplifting message. In a show-stopping finale, Josh Groban drops by and joins Idina in a duet of his hit single “Awake.”
