Grande took away focus on recording her forthcoming Moonlight record to sing some show tunes.
Fans attending Jason Robert Brown’s recent The Last Five Years, Parade concert at Hollywood’s Catalina Bar and Grill received quite the surprise when Brown introduced Grande. Now she’s a super star pop singer, but Brown reminisced his first encounters with Grande together during their time on 13 on Broadway seven years ago. Grande, who sang two numbers from 13 (composed by Brown) as well as a duet with Broadway star Shoshana Bean, seemed excited to step away from the glamorous role she’s molded into and sing a few numbers sans choreography and backup dancers. Grande simply rocked a pair of glasses and an oversized grey hoodie for the performance to remind us why she hones one of the prettiest voices in 2016.
