Renée Fleming is one of the most acclaimed singers of our time. In 2013, President Obama awarded her America's highest honor for an artist, the National Medal of Arts. She brough her voice to a vast new audience in 2014 as the first classical artist ever to sing the National Anthem at the super Bowl. Winner of the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Classical Vocal Solo, Fleming has sung for momentous occasions from the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony to the Diamond Jubilee Concert for Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. Known for bringing new audiences to classical music and opera, Fleming has sung not only with Pavarotti, Domingo, and Bocellin, but also with Elton John, Paul Simon, Sting, Josh Groban, and Joan Baez. She is currently spearheading a groundbreaking collaboration between the John F. Kennedy Center and the National Institutes of Health focused on the connections between music, wellness, and the brain. Fleming won her fourth Grammy Award for her album Poèmes, and her most recent album Distant Light was recorded with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic and released in January by Decca. She will also be heard as the singing voice of Roxane, played by Julianne Morre, in the upcoming Hollywood film of Ann Patchett's best-selling novel Bel Canto.
