Mandy Gonzalez, who is currently starring in the Broadway production of the Tony-winning Hamilton as Angelica Schuyler, releases the first single from her debut solo recording, Fearless, October 6. The song, also titled “Fearless,” was penned by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Customers who pre-order the album, which will be released October 20, will receive a download of the title song starting today.
Watch Gonzalez perform the title tune at the recent Viva Broadway celebration in the video above.
The seven-track recording, which bridges pop and R&B, features new tunes by Miranda, Jennifer Nettles, Bill Sherman, and Tom Kitt as well as a duet with Christopher Jackson, the Hamilton star who was featured opposite Gonzalez in In the Heights. The recording also includes an intimate version of her signature song, In the Heights’ “Breathe,” and a remake of the classic “Que Será, Será.”
Gonzalez is the first artist launched on a new imprint under the Arts Music umbrella recently formed by Warner Music Group. The actor will perform selections from the album at New York’s Café Carlyle from October 24 to November 4.
Digital pre-order is available at Fearless.us.
