“We’ve Got Tonight” by Idina and Charles Kelley

 

“We’ve Got Tonight (Live)” by Idina Menzel and Charles Kelley is available now as part of the release of the Kenny Rogers concert tribute, “Kenny Rogers: All In For The Gambler – All-Star Concert Celebration”. The concert was filmed way back in 2017 and finally aired on CBS in September 2021. The CD/DVD is available on Amazon and the song is available on streaming platforms, including Apple Music. I absolutely loved this performance and I’m so glad it’s finally available!

Idina Menzel Makes Fashion Debut With ENCORE

Idina Menzel is getting into the fashion business! A preview of her new sportswear collection, Encore by Idina Menzel, is now available on QVC.com! Encore by Idina Menzel is a collection of chic yet easy-to-wear styles that transition seamlessly from one activity to the next. Idina will appear on QVC May 23 from 4 to 5 PM to launch the collection, which features jumpsuits, hooded rompers, ballet cardigans, fit and flare dresses, high-waisted crop jeans and French terry zip-front hoodies and pants ranging from $40 to $100.

The signature piece is the “Swing Jumpsuit”. Idina spoke with WWD about the collection and shared: “The swing is the person in theater who I respect the most and is the person who has to learn every role. For me, it’s a hooded jumpsuit. If you really wanted to, you can wear it to bed and wake up, throw on sneakers and get your kids to school, throw heels in your car, and if you have to go for drinks later, you can go out.” Read the full interview here and shop the collection here!

Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth reunited at last night’s “The Tony Awards Present: Broadway’s Back!” event! The duo performed a very moving rendition of WICKED’s “For Good” as part of a segment featuring the best of Broadway duets. Anthony Rapp and Adam Pascal followed with their own performance of “What You Own” from another musical you may know, RENT!

I’ve added photos of Idina performing as well as backstage to the gallery:
