TEDxSouthLakeTahoe: Fall in love with fear | Sandra Joseph
Sandra Joseph holds the record as Broadway’s longest-running leading lady (Christine Daaé in The Phantom of the Opera) and is the author of Unmasking What Matters: 10 Life Lessons from 10 Years on Broadway. Through song and story, Sandra pulls back the curtain and reveals how her battle with fear offstage mirrored her character’s struggle onstage and led her to the question: What if we could fall in love with what we fear? As the lines between art and life blur, one thing becomes clear: Rather than hold us back or choke us with worry, the things we fear the most might actually free us to live our lives full-out. Sandra Joseph is a history-making Broadway star, a bestselling author, and a keynote speaker.
Ten years as Christine in The Phantom of the Opera earned her the record as the longest-running leading lady in the longest-running Broadway show of all time. Oprah calls her a Broadway legend and an inspiration.
Sandra has been seen on numerous national broadcasts, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, The Today Show, The View, and Oprah: Where Are They Now?.
Sandra is the author of the #1 international bestselling book, Unmasking What Matters: 10 Life Lessons from 10 Years on Broadway and the coauthor of Your Creative Soul: Expressing Your Authentic Voice with five-time New York Times bestselling author Caroline Myss.
Recognized for her thought leadership, Sandra is a member of The Transformational Leadership Council, a group of 100 top personal development professionals, founded by Jack Canfield. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
