Biography

One of the most beloved and celebrated musical ambassadors of our time, soprano Renée Fleming captivates audiences with her sumptuous voice, consummate artistry, and compelling stage presence. Last summer, the President awarded Ms. Fleming the National Medal of Arts, America's highest honor for an individual artist.

Ms. Fleming’s versatility, authenticity and approachability have inspired her unofficial title, “the people’s diva.” A four-time Grammy winner, Ms. Fleming won the 2013 Best Classical Vocal Solo Award for Poèmes, and in June 2010, Decca and Mercury records released the CD Dark Hope, which features Ms. Fleming covering songs by indie-rock and pop artists.

Ms. Fleming continues to grace the world’s greatest opera stages and concert halls, now extending her reach to include other musical forms and media.  Over the past few seasons, she has hosted a wide variety of television and radio broadcasts, including the Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD series for movie theaters and television, and Live From Lincoln Center on PBS.  

As a musical statesman, Renée Fleming has been sought after on numerous distinguished occasions, from the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize ceremony to performances in Beijing during the 2008 Olympic Games. In January 2009, Ms. Fleming was featured in the televised We Are One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial concert for President Obama.
