We said we’d end 2020 with a bang, and we did. We really did.

For our last Real Talk of the year, we got to hang out Grammy-award winning artist, Leslie Odom Jr. of the incredible musical, Hamilton. We chatted about the musical, his experience as a Broadway star, and his book, Failing Up: How to Take Risks, Aim Higher, and Never Stop Learning, a collection of personal stories about “unlocking your true potential and making your dreams come true even when it seems impossible.”

We also got some insight to his new role as Sam Cooke in the upcoming film, One Night in Miami.

Overall, it was a perfect way to end 2020, and welcome 2021. Thanks, Leslie!
