Actress and Columbia recording artist Katharine McPhee spent the past two years starring in the Steven Spielberg/NBC TV series SMASH in New York City. Katharine 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.

Shortly 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 currently is the celebrity ambassador for Malaria No More.

Katharine co-starred in the hit Adam Sandler comedy movie 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.
