This year, the 2020 Memphis Healthcare Luncheon is going virtual, streaming live on Friday, December 11. We are very excited to announce that our 2020 celebrity speaker/entertainer/author will be Tony and Grammy Award-winner and star of the Broadway smash hit musical, "Hamilton," Leslie Odom, Jr.!
Leslie Odom, Jr., is a multifaceted performer-spanning Broadway, television, film and music. He is perhaps best known for his breakout role as Aaron Burr in "Hamilton," for which he won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical and a Grammy Award as a principal soloist on the original cast recording. He most recently released his third full-length album and first of original material, entitled "Mr" and also starred alongside Cynthia Erivo in the Harriet Tubman biopic, "Harriet."
His book, Failing Up: How to Take Risks, Aim Higher and Never Stop Learning, brings together what Odom has learned in life thus far, tapping into universal themes of starting something new, following your passions, discovering your own potential and surrounding yourself with the right people and making your own dreams come true.
Odom will also be singing several songs from "Hamilton" as well as his Christmas album!
