She grew up in Southern California, but Eden Espinosa always wanted to move to New York City. Once she did, she never looked back. Since bursting onto the scene as Idina Menzel's understudy in the Original Broadway Cast of WICKED, Eden has established herself as one of the most powerful and versatile voices on Broadway. She originated the title role of BROOKLYN, and her dynamic performance as Maureen in RENT was captured forever on film when the show closed its run on Broadway.
In this episode of the BIV Podcast, Eden discusses Mariah Carey's influence on her as a singer, earning her stripes at theme parks, and why she's always striving to perfect her craft. We'll learn what it's like to sing one of the most famous songs in modern Musical Theatre history, and why Social Media can make the lives of performers so difficult.
Eden also tells us why you'll never see her singing from the front row of the choir during a BIV concert.
