Audra McDonald, who has headlined in productions such as Carousel, Ragtime, A Raisin in the Sun, 110 in the Shade, Twelfth Night, Porgy and Bess and Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, is one of the most honored actresses of her generation and an entertainment legend. Having earned a record six Tony Awards thus far in her career, she remains one of the highest regarded and busiest women in show business. Trained in classical voice at the Juilliard School, Audra resides in Westchester County with her husband Will Swenson and her children. “The more I’ve learned about what Covenant House is doing for homeless youth all over the country and around the world, the more excited I’ve become to join this powerful movement on behalf of homeless kids,” says Ms McDonald. She joined the Board in the fall of 2014.
