Cynthia Erivo-Live from Lincoln Center

Cynthia Erivo graced PBS’s Live from Lincoln Center broadcast Friday night. (available on demand currently). I discovered her last year in the film Bad Times at the El Royale. When she sang “You Can’t Hurry Love” I fell under her spell.She won a tony award for the revival of “A Color Purple” in 2016. The eclectic song list for the Lincoln Center performance is flawless. You won’t be able to listen to “God Only Knows” without comparing it to her version. And don’t get me started with how she handles Aretha’s “Ain’t no Way”. A unique brilliant talent with a voice of rare range and depth.
