MATILDA's Emma Howard World Premieres 'Fly High' Live At 54 Below
A delightful world premiere by a MATILDA standout!
WHERE THE SKY ENDS: THE SONGS OF MICHAEL MOTT composer and lyricist Michael Mott presented a brand new evening of music earlier this week at famed NYC venue 54 Below titled THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS HOW: AN EVENING WITH MICHAEL MOTT & FRIENDS and a brand new video of MATILDA and VIOLET star Emma Howard premiering a brand new song written especially for her titled "Fly High" is now available to view.
The official description of Mott's THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS HOW was as follows: "That Was Then, This Is How chronicles the journey of theatrical and pop singer/songwriter, Michael Mott, from small town dreamer to one of theatre's most promising new songwriters. Joined by some of Broadway and pop's most recognizable talents, Michael shares a personal side of himself in an intimate evening of stories and songs in That Was Then, This Is How. Directed by Hunter Bird. Produced by Shoshana Feinstein. Praised for his chameleon-like versatility, Mott is best known for his recently released critically acclaimed debut album, Where The Sky Ends, which BroadwayWorld referred to as "a masterpiece." In addition to selections from the LP, audiences can expect to hear brand new pop songs as well as never before heard material from his original musicals Faustus and Mob Wife.
