CCM alum Shoshana Bean's new album

shoshana bean.jpg

After graduating from UC’s College Conservatory of Music, Shoshana Bean attained great success in New York, appearing in Godspell, Hairspray and Leader of the Pack before being cast in Wicked. After a year of understudying, she spent one year in the lead role of Elpheba. Realizing that could be the pinnacle of her Broadway career, she moved to California and is now writing and performing her own music, including her newly released CD O’Farrelll Street. Assistant Producer Kevin Reynolds remembers Shoshana onstage at CCM and talks with her about her career and this new album.

Shoshana has her own YouTube channel, full of videos from previous performances. She doesn't have a video out yet from her new CD, O'Farrell Street, but it'll be coming soon. But you can hear the different cuts from the CD here as well as enjoy some different performances. Shoshana Bean YouTube
