On tour, Idina will be featuring fan favorites from some of Broadway’s best, including “Rent” and “Wicked.” She explained how working on “Wicked” helped her get through tough times.

“I feel like ‘Wicked’ really helped me come out of myself at that time, and now this last show I did, ‘If/Then’ was all about starting your life over, and those were important themes for me in the past two years,” said Idina.

The biggest change for Idina was starting over as a single mother after her divorce from Taye Diggs. Mario asked the singer if there was anyone special in her life. She smiled, “You know something here and there, but we'll see what happens.”
