Decca Gold is proud to announce the forthcoming release of Sing Happy, the live performance of the New York Philharmonic's 2018 Spring Gala starring Grammy, Emmy, and Tony Award-winner Audra McDonald, conducted by Andy Einhorn. Recorded live on May 1 at David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center, the recording represents McDonald's first collaboration with Decca Gold – as well as her first solo recording with full orchestra.

Sing Happy features many songs that are either new to McDonald's repertoire or have never before been recorded by her – such as "I Am What I Am" from La Cage aux Folles, "Vanilla Ice Cream" from She Loves Me, and "Children Will Listen" from Into The Woods– and offers a sneak peek at the repertoire she's performing on her upcoming North American concert tour. The album will be quickly mastered and sequenced and set for digital release on May 11 and physical formats on June 1.

Acclaimed by The New York Times as a "one-of-a-kind musical super-talent," Audra McDonald has won a record-breaking six Tony Awards, making her the most decorated performer in American theater. The singer and actress was named one of TIME magazine's 100 most influential people of 2015 and received a 2015 National Medal of Arts - America's highest honor for achievement in the arts - from President Barack Obama. McDonald is currently starring in the CBS All Access drama The Good Fight and has a series of concert dates throughout North America on which she's presenting many of the songs from Sing Happy. In addition to her work on stage and screen, McDonald is noted as a passionate advocate for equal rights, LGBTQ causes, and underprivileged youth.
