Description

Virtuoso talent, Bobbi MacKenzie, closed our 6th Annual TEDxPortland with a show stopping performance. Thank you for taking the time from your Broadway performance to come back to your hometown Bobbi! 11-year-old Bobbi earned national attention singing The Star-Spangled Banner for the Portland Trail Blazers, Golden State Warriors, Sacramento Kings and the San Francisco 49ers. Bobbi’s voice and presence caught the attention of Andrew Lloyd Webber, who hand-picked her to star as Tomika in School of Rock: The Musical on Broadway at the Winter Garden Theatre. The actress and songstress has also worked and recorded with Grammy award-winning producer Rob Cavallo on the original cast recording for School of Rock: The Musical. She would later be asked to represent the musical in Broadway at the White House hosted by Michelle Obama. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
