Kristin Chenoweth Delivers 'The Art of Elegance' in New Solo Album This Fall
Actress and classically trained singer Kristin Chenoweth has shared a video preview of her forthcoming album, The Art of Elegance. The new disc from the Tony Award-winning chanteuse displays the Bewitched star's operatic soprano voice in a broad range of classic music styles. The CD is scheduled to be released by Concord Records on Sept. 23.
Fans of viral video violinist Joshua Bell will be familiar with Ms. Chenoweth's vocal talent -- Kristin appeared on his 2009 collaborative album, At Home With Friends, alongside other singing stars like Josh Groban and Regina Spektor.
The Art of Elegance highlights Kristin's sultry vocals on Great American Songbook covers like Frank Sinatra's "I'm A Fool to Want You" and Ella Fitzgerald's "Someone to Watch Over Me." Of the classic throwback material, Chenoweth declared in the new promotional clip, "This is me."
