BWW TV Exclusive: Watch Highlights from Rebecca Naomi Jones' AMERICAN SONGBOOK Concert!
Now in its 16th season, Lincoln Center's acclaimed series American Songbook continues to expand its scope celebrating the best in American singing and songwriting. Featured over the weekend was Rebecca Naomi Jones, and you can watch exclusive highlights from her concert below!
Rebecca Naomi Jones is the product of a culture-saturated New York childhood. She had a musician father and photographer mother, and she knew when she performed in a sixth-grade production of Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book that she wanted to be on stage. Jones has pursued that goal ever since, studying voice, dance, and acting in high school and in college. Returning home to New York, one of her first major roles was in Stew and Heidi Rodewald's Passing Strange, where it was cathartic as a biracial woman for her to work in a play about finding your place in the world. A next major role for Jones was inAmerican Idiot, the musical version of the rock group Green Day's album American Idiot.
