    Autumn DeWilde

    Audra McDonald—who is starring as Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill at Wydnham's Theatre on London's West End through September 9—spoke with Alec Baldwin about her life and storied career as the guest on the latest episode of Baldwin's Here's the Thing podcast from WNYC Studios.

    "Much like the staggering beauty of her voice, Audra McDonald is impossible to ignore," says Baldwin. "The only artist to sweep all four acting categories at the Tonys, she's one of the most decorated Broadway star of all time. Reviews of her award-winning performances overflow with accolades: she's 'spellbinding,' 'radiant,' and 'wrenchingly human.'"

    You can listen to what McDonald had to say in the episode below.

    Audra McDonald has released five solo albums on Nonesuch Records: Go Back Home (2013), Build a Bridge (2006), Happy Songs (2002), How Glory Goes (2000), and Way Back to Paradise (1998).

    The acclaimed trio Mountain Man's first album in eight years, Magic Ship, is out now. The record includes eleven originals plus interpretations of songs by Ted Lucas and Michael Hurley, and a traditional hymn—"intimate, close-harmony songs that tap into an ageless essence of traditional ballads and lullabies as they contemplate companionship, family, love and death," says the New York Times. Nonesuch Store CD and vinyl orders include an exclusive signed print while supplies last; bundle options include an exclusive tote bag. The trio will be at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on September 24 and will tour the US this fall.
