A few years ago I was watching a really beautiful video of a song called Seriously.
I was really obsessed with it. I listened to it so many times, and it moved me. It put an amazing singer on my radar: Leslie Odom Jr.
As I started researching him, I found out so much more about him. He started on Broadway as a teenager doing a little show called Rent.
Most recently you may have heard of another show he’s been doing: Hamilton.
I think it’s no surprise that both of these shows blew up with him on the stage. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness I sat down with Leslie to discuss what it takes to be a real artist and dominate your field.
