Fan surprises Kristin Chenoweth on stage with amazing voice

Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth was left stunned during a show at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Saturday when a fan joined her onstage for a Wicked duet and became an instant star.

The actress/singer asked Sarah Horn to join her for a rendition of “For Good,” which Chenoweth sang on Broadway as a member of Wicked’s original cast, and was blown away by her new pal’s talents.

Horn, a California voice coach, belted out the duet and even harmonized with the star, leaving Chenoweth lost for words and beaming with glee.

Declaring Horn’s performance “inspiring” as she left the stage to a standing ovation following her stint in the spotlight with her heroine, Chenoweth added, “That voice is teaching our young people.”

Horn insists her moment of glory was destined because she actually swapped seats with another concertgoer and then offered to take the place of Chenoweth’s first volunteer when she revealed she did not know the words to “For Good.”

She tells LAist.com, “I lifted my microphone to my mouth, looked Kristin straight in the eye and sang the first of my lines. She leaned back and dropped her jaw. She knew I was a voice teacher but didn’t know if I did well in the execution or not. As far as she knew, I could have been tone deaf.”
