Post a song sung by your favourite male singer in a musical.
This was much tougher than yesterday’s challenge. I can think of so many male singers: John Barrowman, Brian Stokes Mitchell, John Raitt, for starters. But there is not one for whom I feel the same kind of affinity that I did when Audra McDonald sprang to mind yesterday. So I am going to name someone from the left field today: Cito Otto. I have seen him in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Jesus Christ Superstar and Tim Rice, Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson’s Chess. He was fantastic in both and, as I saw both shows several times, I can also say that he was consistently fantastic in both. I have not heard a “Pity the Child” that can top his. Unfortunately, YouTube disappoints and I can’t find any video footage of that number. What is on offer are clips from two numbers from Jesus Christ Superstar, a production to which Cito is returning next month. I am sure his vocals will still be breathtaking.
