Last weekend, a local birthday celebration was graced by the impromptu vocal prowess of Katie McMichaels, who took it upon herself to sing the harmony line at the end of the “Happy Birthday” song. Mere moments after the song’s conclusion, the entire American Theatre Wing arrived to grant her a Tony Award for Best Original Score.

“We’ve never heard talent like this before. Like, ever,” said four-time Tony host Neil Patrick Harris.
