Quotes

  • If you follow your path and focus on love, things will work out.
  • You can’t get it all right all the time, but you can try your best. If you’ve done that, all that’s left is to accept your shortcomings and have the courage to try to overcome them.
  • Honestly, I remember most the look on my husband’s face. The other thing I remember is when they were reading off the [nominees’] names and they read Donna [Donna Murphy]’s name, I was smiling, and he leaned over into my ear and he said, ‘If they don’t read your name, the smile you have on your face now is perfect for when the camera hits you. Just keep that smile, it looks very good.’ And I looked at him and I was like, ‘Like this?’ and he was like, ‘Yeah, just keep that if you don’t win.’ – When asked what she remembers the most from the night she won the Tony.
  • “Everyone got really close, but Taye and I especially became close friends. And then, one night, we went to the movies, and I think we saw Twister (1996), and he held my hand. And there it was!” – On her courtship with her husband, Taye Diggs, whom she met through the musical “Rent”.
  • I’ve been singing since I was born. It’s something I do everywhere I go. In the shower, walking down the street. I don’t need any impetus to do it. I just sing.
  • I feel like I was born to do this… I started working professionally as soon as I could, doing weddings and things like that in high school, while everyone else was having keg parties. I just felt destined to do it and really committed and driven; it was something that just felt right all my life.
  • Things happen for a reason, and in their own time.
  • “It’s hard to absorb and to allow all that attention and accolades for Rent because the rest of the country doesn’t know who we are. Once I walk out of the door of Rent, and I’m on the subway, it doesn’t matter. It’s an exaggerated sense of fame.” – on the international ‘Rent’ craze.

Facts

  • The two songs that she is best known for, Defying Gravity and Let It Go, are both about a woman refusing to accept society’s limitations and fully embracing the extent of her inner powers.
  • Upon being announced as the winner of the 2004 Tony Award for ‘Wicked,’ she went and kissed and hugged her co-star and fellow nominee Kristin Chenoweth, only to then turn back afterward to kiss her husband Taye Diggs.
  • In 2011, she was awarded an honorary doctorate in Arts and Letters from Long Island (NY) University, at which time she addressed the graduates of the C.W. Post Campus of the University. The ceremony took place only 5 miles from the town where she was born and grew up.

This was widely mocked in the press and spurred the creation of several Twitter accounts under that (incorrect) name that quickly gained thousands of followers.
