Renowned for her powerhouse presence and show-stopping performances, Katharine McPhee possesses a singing voice for the ages. Celebrate the launch of MPAC’s 25th Anniversary season with the actress and performer who first came to the public’s attention as a contestant on American Idol and has gone on to a successful career on TV (Scorpion, Smash), stage (Waitress) and the pop and jazz charts.

Audiences first fell under the chanteuse’s spell during a storied run on American Idol Season 5 in 2006. Propelled by the smash “Over It,” her 2007 self-titled debut bowed at #2 on the BillboardTop 200 and achieved an RIAA gold certification. 2010 saw her return with not one, but two records—Unbroken and Christmas is the Time To Say I Love You. Simultaneously, she became a force on the big and small screens.

McPhee co-starred alongside Debra Messing on Smash from executive producer Steven Spielberg as well as guest appearances on CSI: NYCommunityFamily Guy, and more. Meanwhile, she starred in various films. A sought-after performer, she has taken stage for PBS specials — including her own special — Soundstage: Katharine McPhee, and Foster and Friends. In the fall of 2017 McPhee reimagines, recharges, and reinvigorates a host of timeless jazz standards on her fifth full-length, I Fall In Love Too Easily [BMG] produced by Don Was [The Rolling Stones, Bonnie Raitt].
