Katharine McPhee show at UB benefits Ronald McDonald House of Buffalo

The Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo will present Katharine McPhee on Nov. 24 in the Mainstage Theatre for a show that benefits Ronald McDonald House of Buffalo. Tickets are $77, $62 and $47.

This concert is presented by The Derico of East Amherst Corporation and its employees, a locally owned McDonald’s organization. Concert proceeds benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Buffalo which is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Since opening its doors to families of seriously ill or injured children, the Ronald McDonald House of Buffalo has provided comfortable, affordable lodging for 18,000 families from Western New York and around the world. The Ronald McDonald House is a family’s “home-away-from-home” when their child requires specialized medical care at a Buffalo hospital.

Actress and Columbia recording artist McPhee spent the past two years starring in the Steven Spielberg/NBC TV series "SMASH" in New York City. She is currently in the studio working on her next solo record, due out later this year.  The album will feature McPhee’s collaborations with some of the industry’s top songwriters.

Following her rise to fame as the runner-up on Season 5 of "American Idol," McPhee’s self-titled debut album exploded on the Billboard 200. It was also the best chart debut for a female artist during that period in two years. In addition to her acting and singing career, Katharine is a passionate philanthropist and the celebrity ambassador for Malaria No More.

McPhee co-starred in the hit Adam Sandler comedy House Bunny and in episodes of "CSI-NY," "Community" and "Family Guy." She was featured on two hit PBS specials – Foster and Friends and Chris Botti in Boston alongside Sting, Andrea Bocelli, and John Mayer
