Roosevelt CCPA alumnus Khary Laurent (BM, ’03, MM, ’07) was intereviewed and performed on The Rosie Show, Rosie O’Donnell’s Chicago-based talk show on Oprah Winfrey’s channel, OWN.
During the interview, O’Donnell mentioned that she was chatting with Laurent in a cab when he mentioned that he was a singer. Initially sceptical, she asked him to sing and was so impressed she recorded him on her iPhone and then asked him to be on his show. Laurent performed a song that was an original mix of opera, hip-hop and funk. He wowed the crowd and O’Donnell with his versatile talent and incredible stage presence, and brought the audience to its feet with his music.
