I’ve written about Audra McDonald for a Geek Out previously, but today’s is song specific. “Cradle and All” is written by Ricky Ian Gordon and Jessica Molaskey and appeared on McDonald’s Build a Bridge CD. This song is gorgeous. I encourage you to listen to the message in the lyrics and appreciate Audra’s voice blending so beautifully with the orchestra. This performance comes from a Live at Lincoln Center performance filmed at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Hall.

Enjoy!
