Audra McDonald covers April’s ESSENCE!

For Immediate Release

“Winning was surreal, a totally out-of-body experience…I thought I would suddenly feel different—that I would finally figure out how to organize my underwear drawer. I’m grateful and blown away by it all, but I’m still me. I still have work to do…”—Audra McDonald, ESSENCE.

Hello! ESSENCE’s April “Careers” issue cover features the incredible Audra McDonald.
