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.
