BWW TV Exclusive: Watch Kristin Chenoweth Sing 'Hard Times Come Again No More' from COMING HOME DVD


"The whole experience was very emotional," Kristin Chenoweth says of the historic performance that's captured on Coming Home, her first-ever live DVD on Concord Records. Scheduled for release on February 3, 2015, the aptly titled DVD captures the versatile singer-actress singing for a rapturously enthusiastic crowd at the Kristin Chenoweth Theatre in the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center in her hometown of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

"Any time you come home, you have a flood of emotions, and singing in front of people I've known most of my life made me even more nervous," Chenoweth observes. "But I couldn't imagine doing it anyplace else. I just wanted them to be proud of me."

Below, we are excited to bring you a world premiere exclusive of Chenoweth singing Stephen Foster's "Hard Times Come Again No More" from the DVD. Check out the full performance below!

The career-spanning performance is the video counterpart to Kristin Chenoweth: Coming Home, the artist's first television concert special, which premiered on PBS stations nationwide on November 28, 2014 and was previously released on CD. Concord's retail DVD version includes the PBS Show plus Behind the Scenes, "Hard Times Come Again No More," "Little Sparrow," "Heart of the Matter," "I Will Always Love You," "I'll Be Home for Christmas" and a "My Father's Day video."

Coming Home's many highlights include powerful new renditions of "Popular" and "For Good," both of which Chenoweth introduced in her starring role in the Broadway smash Wicked. She also brings fresh energy and emotion to such venerable standards as Lerner and Loewe's "I Could Have Danced All Night," Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg's "Over the Rainbow," Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein's "All the Things You Are," and the more recent show tunes "Bring Him Home," from LES MISERABLES; and "Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again," from Phantom of the Opera.
