VIDEO: Shoshana Bean Performs 'Make it Rain' at Her Los Angeles Album Release Show

Shoshana Bean recently performed at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles in honor of the release of her album, Spectrum. The concert featured special guests Amber Riley and Haley Reinhart. Check out the video of her performance of "Make it Rain" below!

Spectrum, Bean's fourth studio album (currently #1 on the Billboard Jazz Chart), is a fresh new take on the classic tradition of big band with arrangements by Grammy award-nominated arranger Alan Ferber. This concert will feature Bean along with an 18 piece big band performing a carefully-selected collection of standards, classics and modern favorites, while still including a few Bean-penned gems. Bean made her Broadway debut in the original cast of Hairspray before taking over for Idina Menzel as Elphaba in Wicked and has performed all over the world with artists such as Ariana Grande, Brian McKnight, Postmodern Jukebox (PMJ), David Foster and Michael Jackson.

Inspired largely by Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, and Barbra Streisand, Spectrum promises to be Bean's most impressive project to date. Her three solo albums have topped the iTunes R&B and Blues charts in the US and UK: Superhero (2008), O'Farrell Street (2013) and Shadows To Light (2013), which debuted at #10 on Billboard's Blues Albums charts. She has amassed millions of views on YouTube, most recently her cover of Taylor Swift's "I Did Something Bad" garnered a frenzy of media attention, as well as earned high praise from Swift herself.

Shoshana Bean's independent solo releases have topped the iTunes R&B and Blues charts in the US and UK in peak positions including #1, and her latest release earned her a hot shot debut at #10 on the Billboard Blues charts.

Bean is a veteran of the Broadway stage, having made her debut in the original cast ofHairspray and starring as the very first replacement for Elphaba, the green-skinned witch, in Wicked. Most recently, she appeared as Fanny Brice in Funny Girl and in the pre-Broadway production of the new musical Beaches as CeeCee Bloom, for which she earned a Jeff Award Nomination for best lead actress in a musical.

She has sold out solo concerts around the globe, lent her voice to countless films and television shows, amassed millions of views on YouTube. Bean has toured withPostmodern Jukebox, performed alongside Brian McKnight, BeBe Winans and sang back up for Michael Jackson for his 30th anniversary concert at Madison Square Garden.
