Linda Eder’s story has a fairy-tale quality to it; the ease that seems to dominate her ascension is testimony to her gifts. Her first true national exposure was via “Star Search, which she won with an unprecedented thirteen week stay. It was also through “Star Search” that Linda first met her husband-to-be, composer Frank Wildhorn (“Jekyll & Hyde,” “The Scarlet Pimpernel,” “The Civil War” and “Camille Claudel”), who was then casting for “Jekyll & Hyde.” The show went on a 35-city tour before opening on Broadway in 1997. USA Today reviewed the Broadway version of “Jekyll & Hyde,” describing Linda as “a captivating presence and a Streisand-esque singing voice that elevates everything it touches.” Linda’s performance as Lucy earned her the Theatre World Award for Best Broadway Debut as well as the Drama Desk and Outer Critics’ Circle Award Nominations for Best Actress in a Musical.
Her twelve solo albums include: 2010 release “SOUNDTRACK”, “LINDA EDER”, “AND SO MUCH MORE” , “IT’S TIME”, “CHRISTMAS STAYS THE SAME” , “GOLD” , and “BROADWAY MY WAY”. She realized a life-long dream, performing three sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall to what the New York Times described as a “thunderously adoring audience.” Constant comparisons to Judy Garland, Ella Fitzgerald, Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion and other great voices have catapulted Linda into an internationally recognized, elite group of singers and onto television and radio shows.
