Kristin Chenoweth, OCU alumna, will co-host “Live with Regis and Kelly” Thursday, June 24. To see the full story, click here.

This won’t be the first time the 4’11” star will be seen on television. She has appeared on “The West Wing,” a televised adoption of “Annie,” “Sesame Street,” her own series: “Kristin” for NBC,” “Pushing Daises,” and has appeared on “Ugly Betty” and the most recent hit, “Glee.”

I had the honor of meeting Chenoweth in April 2009 at a book signing of her book,”A LITTLE BIT WICKED” at Full Circle Bookstore, 1900 NW Expressway. Not only was she as cute as she appears on the big screen or on stage, but she was humble.

Countless videos on YouTube and other sites feature footage of Chenoweth thanking her voice professor, Florence Birdwell, for helping her achieve her dream. The Emmy Award-winning actress does not forget where she came from, something particularly admirable in an industry where fame and fortune often go to the head.
