Sanjaya Malakar will be a special singing guest in the Intiman Theatre's production of Black Nativity in Seattle. Two other former American Idol hopefuls are also scheduled to appear.
Malakar, as well as Karma Johnson (first season) and Leah Vladowski (who competed as Leah LaBelle in 2004), will perform December 2 at the 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. shows. Each will take on a solo during the two performances of the Intiman's annual holiday production.
The three singers are alumni of the Total Experience Gospel Choir, which is founded and directed by Pastor Patrinell Wright â€” musical director and arranger as well as a performer in the show since its first production in 1998.
Tickets to Black Nativity at the Intiman Playhouse, 201 Mercer Street in Seattle Center, are available by phone at (206) 269-1900 or online at intiman.org .
