Few singers on television, either in or out of the reality realm, have the ability to evoke genuine emotion purely with their vocals. That is, in essence, what separates the goods from the greats. And as anyone who has seen Megan Hilty on Smash (or previously on Broadway) can attest, she's got the goods to be great.
On It Happens All The Time, her newly released album, Hilty delivers in a big way over ten tremendous tracks that reveal a remarkable versatility and showcase her even more remarkable voice. On April 23, Joe's Pub plays host to an intimate concert of her new tunes and ETonline caught up with the triple-threat to talk about this exciting showcase, her CD's inspiration and the last stretch of Smash episodes!
ETonline: Congrats on the Joe's Pub showcase! That's a huge deal.
Megan Hilty: I know, Joe's Pub is an institution of New York. There's so much history and so many great people have performed there, so I'm super excited to be there. Plus, it's the first time I've ever done a concert there. I'm excited to try out a whole new type of music than people are used to hearing from me.
