IDINA AT “SEX AND THE CITY” NYC PREMIERE

Idina made an appearance earlier this evening on the red carpet at the New York City premiere of the film, Sex and the City. Looking stunning as ever, some great pictures are beginning to surface. In the Gallery, I’ve added 30 pictures from the event, with (hopefully) more to come! Check them out by clicking on the thumbnails below:

VINTAGE IDINA VID EXCLUSIVE! — “TOMPKINS SQUARE”

After many years of waiting, I was finally able to catch a re-airing of a very vintage Idina Menzel video: Comedy Central’s “Tompkins Square”, originally broadcast on November 2, 1996, featuring a young Idina while she was still performing in Broadway’s Rent!

The show was a short-lived, stand-up comedy program, hosted by Jeff Ross. Idina guested in the 6th episode as a heckler giving Ross a hard time for his crappy singing voice. As a challenge, he calls her up to sing better. She then rips it up with a rockin’ rendition of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”! Classic Idina – an audio clip many have heard but FEW have seen!

But here it is! It’s been 2 years since the last time it aired, and who knows when it’ll air again. But enjoy it by downloading it in the Video Archive or by going to the IdinaHeredotcom YouTube channel.

NOTE: During the video, take a look at who Idina is sitting next to in the audience — It’s current husband/then-Rent-castmate, Taye Diggs!

PBS MEMORIAL DAY CONCERT VIDEOS

Yes, this is a day late, but I couldn’t get the videos off my TV until tonight. BUT! As most of you know, Idina appeared last night as a special guest performer at the 2008 Memorial Day Concert in Washington D.C., which aired on U.S. channel, PBS. Idina performed a great medley of standards, and then treated the audience to her original song, “Where Do I Begin?.” Finally, she ended the night with the rest of the performers (including Gladys Knight and Sarah Brightman) singing “God Bless America.” The videos have been added to the Video Archive, as well as the IdinaHeredotcom YouTube channel.

This would have been the perfect show for me to attend (since I’ll be in SB two days before for my sis’ graduation), but unfortunately, I’m flying to Europe the day before the concert. I’m sad, but I know all you fans will turn out and show support. This will now be her first west coast concert, since her San Diego show will take place 2 days following. Hopefully more west coast shows will be added shortly!
