BWW Exclusive: Watch Heather Headley Bring Down the House with THE WIZ, FUNNY GIRL & More at American Songbook Concert!
After 16 years away, Tony and Grammy Award winner Heather Headley returned triumphantly to Broadway last summer in¬†The Color Purple. Having originated the role of Nala in¬†The Lion King¬†and awarded a Tony for¬†Aida, the Trinidadian-American performer was rapidly rising to diva status when she shifted gears. In her time away from the theater, she released two gold records, topped the dance and R&B charts, won a Grammy for her gospel album,¬†Audience of One, toured the world with Andrea Bocelli, and started a family. She blazed back in¬†The Bodyguard¬†in London before returning to Broadway.
