“I’ll Be Here” as heard on Go Back Home (2013)
music/lyric Adam Gwon
performance Audra McDonald
One of the things I love most about Audra McDonald’s new album (my copy of which arrived today before it hits stores on the 21st) is a return on her part to promoting emerging music theater writers. In this case, Adam Gwon. She also includes numbers by Adam Guettel and Michael John LaChiusa, whose work she featured on her first albums when they were “emerging” as well.
