Mandy Gonzalez

Mandy Gonzalez has thrilled audiences on Broadway, lit up the screen on television and started a social movement. Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of the musical sensation Hamilton, calls Mandy “one of the greatest singers on earth,”

Mandy currently stars as Angelica Schuyler in Hamilton on Broadway and on the CBS hit, Madam Secretary. Onstage, the dynamic range of Mandy’s voice sets a new standard—one moment, she can be soft and sultry, the next moment, she can shake the rafters. Mandy is a Warner East West Records artist and recently released her debut album, FEARLESS, which debuted at #13 on the iTunes pop charts.

Mandy is also known for originating the role of Nina Rosario in the Tony award-winning show, In the Heights. Previously, she also starred as Elphaba in the Broadway production of Wicked—blowing the roof off of New York’s Gershwin Theatre every night. Mandy has performed for symphonies around the country, including most recently as the lead vocalist for the Philly Pops Christmas Spectacular.

Mandy is also an author—she recently published a widely-cited article in the Harvard Business Review on how to overcome one’s fear of public speaking and be more confident in one’s communication and leadership.

Mandy is the proud founder of #FearlessSquad—a social media movement for inclusiveness and belonging. The movement connects millions of people around the world, encourages them to be their best selves and helps them empower each other.
