Kelli O’Hara Chats About ‘Wonder in the World’
Lovely leading lady Kelli O’Hara has a new Q&A on Broadway.com, where she not only talks about her current gig in South Pacific, the men in her life–from frequent co-star Matthew Morrison to hubby Greg Naughton to collaborator Harry Connick, Jr.–but also about her upcoming solo CD release on Ghostlight Records! Here’s a sampling:
Your album, Wonder in the World, comes out next month. It’s quite a debut, with songs by you, your husband and Harry Connick.
What happened was that we were working on the Pajama Game album for Sony, or what was then Sony Columbia. Harry and I did the Today Show with Matt Lauer and sang a couple of songs. And suddenly I got a call from the people at Sony offering me a record deal. We recorded the album, but then things changed with the corporations and the album wound up sitting on the shelf. So now it’s being released by Ghostlight Records, and I’m very happy with them. They are very ambitious. Harry was instrumental in creating the album; he helped arrange the accompaniment and pick out the songs and he sings on it, too. It’s a great collaboration, and we always love working together.
