The former American Idol star stops by the summer’s hottest competitive singing show The Voice to preview her upcoming new drama!
Becoming runner-up in season five of American Idol has never stopped Katharine McPhee from pursuing a successful career as a singing sensation. Between releasing three solo albums and landing various parts in musicals and small cameos in films, Katharine is finally gaining the recognition she deserves as she prepares for her upcoming role in Smash!
Last night, Katharine stopped by The Voice, one of this summer’s hottest and most addictive shows, to promote her new drama which premieres early next year. Like her own career, Katharine’s character wants to be a singer. “I play a young aspiring actress named Karen from the Midwest and shes taking her shot at Broadway,” she explained. Moreover, she’s accompanied by a superstar veteran cast. “I’m joined by an amazing cast: Angelica Houston, Deborah Messing, and the iconic Stephen Spielberg is our producer so I’m so excited to witness that.”
It’s hard to believe that Stephen is able to find time away from his Transformers duties, but luckily he has the assistance from an authentic and experienced crew. Broadway’s Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman join the producer by composing the music, as playwright Theresa Rebeck is writing the script with Michael Mayer directing. With this talented crew, there’s no doubt this show is going to be a success!
Can’t wait for the premiere? Watch Katharine on The Voice and show off her amazing talents by singing ‘Beautiful’ in this preview!
