    Watch: Audra McDonald Guests on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"

    Audra McDonald, whose new album, Go Back Home, was released this past May on Nonesuch Records, was a special guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on NBC last night. The five-time Tony Award winner stopped by the studio to help Fallon out on a Suggestion Box request to give voice to some sage Yahoo! Answers in her own inimitable way. You can watch the segment below.

    McDonald's US tour keeps her close to home this weekend with a performance at the Caramoor Venetian Theater in Katonah, New York, on Saturday. Later this month, she joins the Boston Symphony Orchestra and conductor John Williams for a concert at Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts. For additional details and tickets to these and other upcoming shows, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Go Back Home, Audra McDonald's first album in seven years, features songs by composers with whom she has long been associated (Guettel, LaChiusa, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Sondheim) and some, like the Kander & Ebb title track, relatively new to her repertoire; in addition, McDonald continues to champion works by an emerging generation of composers. "As usual," says the Los Angeles Times, "she stuns upon entrance, exit and everything else." New York raves: "It’s entirely possible that Audra McDonald is the greatest singer alive." USA Today says: "McDonald has one of the warmest, most glorious singing voices on the planet."
