Head Above The Clouds

The Unheard Tapes: Idina Menzel

Ep. 24

The queen of Broadway has arrived! For Issue 12 I had the opportunity to sit down with Idina Menzel and talk all things, music, theatre, how she manages her anxiety as she’s found fame, the communities that lie at the heart of everything she does and of course her new album, Drama Queen.

The Tony Award winning, multi platinum selling singer songwriter has been at the heart of many cultural moments that I still hold close to my heart, from Wicked and Defying Gravity to being a cultural icon. I accepted pretty early on that I was going to fan girl hard, so here’s your chance to too. So, get comfortable for another episode of The Unheard Tapes. Welcome to the world that is Head Above The Clouds.

  • 21. HATC Magazine Unheard Tapes: Naomi Schiff

    The Unheard Tapes throw back to our Issue cover story with the one and only Naomi Schiff from Issue 11. I’ve been a fan of Naomi’s for quite some time. Personally racing lights up my life especially Sunday afternoons so to chat with Naomi about her racing journey and success is a pinnacle moment. For me Naomi has always been an unapologetic woman powerhouse, paving the way for others in an often dominated male and under represented world of racing. Naomi opens up about her definition of winning and the balance and often huge sacrifice that comes alongside being at the top of your game.Follow and Subscribe and keep up with every guest and conversation!Follow Naomi
