Josh Kaufman Performs “Corner of The Sky” from Pippin – CBS Thanksgiving Day Parade

It’s Josh Kaufman as you’ve never seen him before! The Voice season 6 winner is currently starring as the Prince in the Broadway revival of the musical Pippin. He’ll bee appearing until the hit show closes on January 4.

This morning, CBS featured Broadway performances as part of their Thanksgiving Day Parade coverage. I’m so glad this wasn’t a cheesy lip synced performance on a float! Instead, CBS chose to tape performances in the theater where the actors perform night after night.

But back to Josh! Who knew the white eyed soul man had a Broadway belter hiding inside. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the singer revealed that he loves being versatile. He’s sung soul, jazz, standards, alternative rock, and yes even Broadway showtunes. His Broadway experience came mostly during his childhood in Indiana.

I did some stuff in high school. Honestly, where I have the most experience doing that stuff is growing up in church doing big productions there. That’s where I did a lot of my performing, but I never did it on that big of a scale. I’ve always enjoyed it and it’s something I’ve had an interest in, but it’s not something that I pursued later on when I started focusing on my own music. You make your choices—what avenues you’re going to pursue—and you can’t always do everything. But the fact that this opportunity came up so many years later is amazing, especially since I’m being able to expand on what I’ve been doing. Do something a little bit different, take on a new challenge.

Also performing a song from Pippin, is Carly Hughes and the ensemble singing “Simple Joy.”  She’s fabulous, so don’t miss it!
