I've heard her sing "Watch Me Soar" before, she sang that at her big solo concert in Scheveningen last year. Something totally different would be nice, even though I'd love to hear her "Say Goodbye" :)

Album preview of Rachel Tucker's debut album has arrived! It sounds gorgeous! And if you listen closely to the end of the defying gravity sample you can hear her going up for her signature riff, so I hope that means we have a fully riffed version of defying gravity recorded!!!

I can confirm having been witness to the phenomenal album launch last Thurs that Rachel's DG is EPIC!!!! She does her signature 'look to the western sky' growl and it is utterly fantastic to hear it done with such control and power. Gonna be an amazing album!

I was also at the album launch, and seriously, it was the most perfect night. Such a stunning selection of songs, with her gorgeous voice making them a million times more amazing!

Oh, how I have missed that voice! The power, the control, the emotion and depth... Very excited for this album. She's a star.

She certainly is a star, and how many stars would spend the time and effort to be so wonderfully personable with everyone afterwords! Incredible performer and more important;y the most genuine and wonderful person too! Feeling the Tucker love this week!!

Just listening to it now, her No One But You is just gorgeous.  Wish I'd been able to see her play Meat!

Someone just said on twitter that Katie Rowley Jones is on for Elphaba tonight. Anyone there at tonight's show who can confirm? If so, I'm really really jealous of everyone who gets to see that!
