"I could listen to Lindsay Mendez sing anything. Broadway standards, children's songs, heavy metal... CHRISTMAS TUNES. Check out this video of Tony Award Winning DIVA Lindsay Mendez singing a fun Lynne Shankle arrangement of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." I love watching Lindsay perform because she radiates an infectious joy and happiness that you can still feel if you close your eyes and just listen. She sings through a gorgeous smile and basically I'm now rambling about why I am and always will be obsessed with her. Ok ok stop reading this and just watch it YOU'RE WELCOME!"
