I STAND’S 1ST BIRTHDAY!

I STAND’S 1ST BIRTHDAY!

One year ago today, Idina’s third solo album, I Stand was released. It’s been a crazy, exciting year for Idina and us fans – a release party at Virgin Megastore in New York City, countless television appearances, more than 40 concerts in North America and the UK, Chess, The National Memorial Day Concert, The Tony Awards, Nero, campaigning for President Obama, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 60th Birthday Celebration, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, The Kennedy Center Honors, her first televised solo concert, and the list just goes on! Whew!!


So, what was everyone’s favorite event of the past year? I think my personal favorite would be the Virgin Megastore release party. I waited in line for hours to meet and watch Idina debut her new album. It was so fun!

Now, share your stories!

SOUNDSTAGE TOMORROW + CHESS PICS

SOUNDSTAGE TOMORROW + CHESS PICS

Don’t forget! Tomorrow (Thursday, January 15) PBS is airing Idina’s Soundstage concert special, which was filmed at NYC’s Rose Hall last April. Josh Groban and Ravi Coltrane are special guests for some amazing duets. Be sure to double-check both PBS.org and your own on-screen/hard copy TV guides, because every PBS station has the ability to air it when they see fit. Don’t miss it because you didn’t bother to double-check it!

And her official Soundstage page on PBS’s website is now live! Click here to view new photos, see the setlist, and get a sneak peek at the concert with a performance of “Gorgeous.”

Also, contrary to popular belief (and my own report here), this concert is sadly NOT scheduled for a DVD release at this time. Make sure you record it yourself for repeated viewings, and if you have Blu-Ray, you can still head to your local Sears to pick up the “Best of Soundstage” disc that features “Defying Gravity” and “Awake” with Josh Groban.

Continuing with the PBS theme of late, I finally got around to adding the official photos from the London production to the gallery. Click below to view them.
