Posted by on Jun 9, 2014 in Celebrity Awards, Celebrity Honors, Celebrity Music, Celebrity News, Celebrity Theater | Comments Off

Audra McDonald, 43, one of my celebrity look-a-likes, has just made history with her work as Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill. She takes home the Tony for best lead actress in a play; her sixth win. Previously Audra McDonald was tied with Angela Lansbury and Julie Harris for most awards won, but last night she shatters through the ceiling becoming the biggest winner in the history of the Tonys, she just happens to be black. Audra also makes history for winning the top award in four different performance categories.

The latest win — for best lead actress in a play — also makes McDonald the only woman to win a Tony in all four acting categories. She previously won as best featured actress in a play (“A Raisin in the Sun” and “Master Class”), best lead actress in a musical (“The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess”) and best featured actress in a musical (“Ragtime” and “Carousel”). {Source}

From the first time I saw a special on ABC about her over a decade ago, I have been in love with her journey and her poise. People like Audra are the people we need to seek and support. IJS, Kanye she’s famous with a purpose.
