Hello, I am crissy1616 the maintainer of this community.
This is a community dedicated to the wonderfulness of Audra McDonald! I found it disappointing that she should not yet have a community on livejournal, and so I took it upon myself to create it. Audra McDonald is an unbelievable singer and actress, and I am proud to be her fan.
The purpose of this community is to post and discuss everything and anything AUDRA! Pictures, news, anything is welcome as long as it pertains to Audra.
(Even gorgeous candid!)
