Audra McDonald Sings “America, The Beautiful”

Submitted by on January 8, 2010 – 3:11 pm10 Comments

Private Practice actress and four-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald once again showed off her angelic pipes at last night’s BCS National Championship Game. Find out how she did after the jump.

***Unfortunately, there was a problem with the video of her rendition during pregame yesterday (sorry). Instead, here is a video of her singing “Down With Love.” (I’m sure you’ll get the picture, this lady can sing).***

As many are used to seeing her on television every week,it is easy to forget that she has such an amazing voice. One thing’s for sure: with a rendition like this, no one will ever tell her to keep her day job. I would even venture to say that she upstaged singer Josh Groban, who sang the national anthem.

McDonald is also a two-time Grammy winner and boasts a very active recording and concert career. It seems that some people have all the talent.

It is unclear which team McDonald rooted for as the Alabama Crimson Tide beat the Texas Longhorns 37-21. It is clear, however, that she is a winner regardless.

Should Audra McDonald have been given the national anthem? Which do you think she does better, singing or acting? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
