Teased earlier this week, Opera singer Renee Fleming, a worldwide icon in soprano singing, said that she will perform a song that she hasn’t performed publicly in seven years.
The musical and philanthropically-focused program airs on PBS stations and streaming tomorrow at 8pm EST.
The awe-inspiring Erivo also prepares now for Disney’s live-action remake of its classic animated film, “Pinocchio.” She takes on the ethereal role of the Blue Fairy. We cannot wait to hear her rendition of the classic “When you Wish upon a Star.” The Robert Zemeckis film hits Disney+ sometime in 2022 or 2023.
