Faith Prince to release new album

The first new album from Broadway legend Faith Prince in 13 years is set for release on Broadway Records. "Total Faith: Live from the Royal Room at The Colony" was recorded live at the Royal Room of the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida in Spring, 2010 and will be released on April 16, 2013 and is available for pre-order at http://amzn.com/B00BT0NPI4. The digital release will be available on April 12th.
Faith Prince puts her Royal Room show and the resulting album in context: “Amidst the early stages of a terrible recession, we were opening my new cabaret show in Palm Beach, where the Madoff scandal was especially raw. It then dawned on me, this is how cabaret came to be... A place to escape, to be transported. To quote Kander and Ebb: ‘...so life is disappointing, forget it! In here, life is beautiful.’”
“It gives us great pleasure to present this wonderful new album by the brilliant Faith Prince as a continuation of our mission of releasing new recordings by Broadway’s biggest and brightest stars,” said Van Dean, co-founder of Broadway Records.
