Kristin Chenoweth is back again! On Nov. 18, the Emmy Award-winning singer released her fifth studio album, Coming Home.
But, that’s not all! She’s also doing a PBS concert special to commemorate the release of the new album.
During a recent interview with Billboard, the 46-year-old singer discussed the upcoming concert special and her album.
She revealed why it was important for her to do the concert in her hometown of Broken Arrow, OK.
“The idea was to perform in front of people who had seen me grow up, my ballet teachers, voice teachers in college, people I did cheerleading with, went to church with… they were all there,” she revealed.
“Having an arts center named after you is daunting, but it felt right to do it at home. Still, I was more nervous for this than performing at any other venue. I was a wreck, not going to lie,” she said.
According to Playbill, Chenoweth will be backed by a 13-peice orchestra for the concert. Her repertoire will include the following 14 songs:
“I Could Have Danced All Night”
“Going To The Dance With You”
“My Coloring Book”
“Bring Him Home”
“Upon This Rock”
“Maybe This Time”
“Fathers and Daughters”
“Somewhere Over The Rainbow”
“Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again”
“All the Things You Are”
“Enough Is Enough”
“I Was Here”
Chenoweth also shared some interesting details about the album and what she wants fans to get from her new project. Surprisingly, her intentions are a bit different than most artists.

“I want people to hear a live, non-Auto-Tuned album and know that not every note is pitch-perfect,” Chenoweth said. “It’s not something we really celebrate anymore. You listen to all the greats and there’s rawness. It’s freeing.”
Kristin Chenoweth: Coming Home premieres Friday, Nov. 28 9:oop.m. ET on PBS.
