Vandana's beautiful and powerful cover of "The Wizard and I" from the Broadway musical Wicked.
This is my all-time favorite song by composer Stephen Schwartz! I love the hope, joy, energy, revelation and confidence that slowly becomes evident as the song unfolds. I hope you enjoy my favorite song! If you do, I would be grateful if you shared it with your friends, especially your friends who love the musical Wicked as much as I do!

I started singing when I was five because it made me happy. I used to walk around the house with a hairbrush and sing along to my idols (Olivia Newton-John, Patti LuPone, Barbra Streisand and Johnny Mathis at the time). Music made my imagination soar and singing is the best way I know to connect with people and share a bit about myself.

I trained in classical voice during college and continued to sing songs from Broadway musicals and pop songs (Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Sheena Easton, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan) at European festivals, at weddings, events and at venues from coast to coast including Feinstein's at the Nikko, Don't Tell Mama, the Plush Room, The Fairmont San Francisco, Society Cabaret and as a regular at Martuni's, the top piano bar in San Francisco.
