Kristin Chenoweth: My New Inspiration...
Ok, I will go ahead and admit I am a little late to the Kristin Chenoweth party. The very first time I saw Kristin perform actually wasn't on stage in the mega-hit Wicked or on Pushing Daisies. Nope, I never even knew a TV show, named for her, one time graced the airwaves of NBC. I actually first discovered Kristin on an episode of Glee as the lovable yet somewhat misguided character, April Rhodes.
Even though I "found" her much later than all of you Kristin supa-fans, it took me .1 second to realize what a talent this woman was.....
and then....I read her book.
Kristin's book, A Little Bit Wicked, takes us on a journey of Kristin's life from a young girl in Oklahoma to a Broadway and TV phenom. I have to thank one of my fave bloggers, Tatiana from Love, Life, Lace for inspiring me to buy this book. After reading the first page, I simply could not put the book down. I loved learning how Kristin came from a modest upbringing to stardom all because of her hard work, faith, and dedication.
I often think you must be "connected" to make it in the world of Broadway and TV, but none of Kristin's success was handed to her. Even if you don't know who Kristin is, I recommend this book as an inspiration to chase your dreams no matter what your background.
Now, I am sad I've missed my chance to see Kristin perform in Wicked on Broadway but I look forward to her future endeavors and plan to follow her on her magnificent journey!
