Broadway & Symphony Star Capathia Jenkins
Hello and welcome to episode 27 of Sing! Dance! Act! Thrive!
Today we have Broadway and Symphony Star Capathia Jenkins. I love this line from her bio that says “This woman who grappling with two dueling passions each with a strong grip: acting and music, yet she refuses to pick one because they both represent her soul. Capathia approaches a song the same way she approaches a script, like an artist. She looks for the nuances, the secret hidden within the notes or text. She seeks the melody, harmony and rhythm. She asks herself: what am I trying to say? What do I want my audience to experience with me? She wants to take her audience on a journey.
Her Broadway theatre credits include Newsies, The Civil War, The Look of Love, Caroline, Or Change and Martin Short-Fame Becomes Me.
Her Television credits include 30 Rock, the Practice, Law & Order SVU, the Sopranos, Law & Order. She can be seen in the film ‘Musical Chairs’ and heard on the film soundtracks of Nine, Chicago, and Legally Blonde 2.
An active concert artist, she has appeared with orchestras around the world including the Toronto Symphony where she is a featured performer in James Bond: The Music Oct 15th and 16th. Next she performs a tribute to Aretha Franklin with various orchestras across the US.
I hope that you enjoy it, she has a lot of great advice for up and coming performers.
It was so great chatting with Capathia and I am looking forward to seeing the show on Tue. If you are in Toronto check out tso.ca for all the upcoming concerts. For links and transcript for this show visit http://singdanceactthrive.com/027
