The debut release off The Voice judge’s new label, Where It All Began will feature 12 musical theater tracks including “Singin’ in the Rain,” “On The Street Where You Live,” “Ease on Down the Road,” “Younger Than Springtime” and “Luck Be a Lady.” In coordination with the album release, PBS will air a concert special featuring Morrison called Where It All Began—Live From the Bushnell on June 1.
"I enjoyed the journey back to my roots on this new album,” said Morrison in a statement. "This is the album I’ve always wanted to make, and I am looking forward to sharing the experience with everyone."
Morrison received a Tony nomination for originating the role of Fabrizio in The Light at the Piazza.
