Sarah Horn, who performed this summer at the Redlands Bowl, gains fame with Youtube video

When Redlands Bowl singer Sarah Horn was led on stage at the Hollywood Bowl from her seat in the audience, her first words were a breathless exclamation, “I’m on stage with Kristin Chenoweth.” Less than three minutes into a crowd-pleasing rendition of “For Good” from the musical “Wicked,” Horn had the Broadway star bending at the waist and pumping her fist in exultation.
“Holy crap, harmony,” Chenoweth said before the two belted out the final line, hand-in-hand, “Because I knew you, I have been changed for good.”
Since that Aug. 23 night that ended with a hug from Chenoweth, two bows and a kiss blown to thousands in attendance, Horn’s life has changed — with the help of technology. Her friend captured the performance on his cell phone and uploaded it to Youtube. The video has been watched millions of times and aired on various television programs. Horn has engaged in the media blitz chatting with reporters, writing first-hand accounts and is scheduled to return to the Hollywood Bowl next month to judge a competition. Before her now famous Hollywood performance, Horn’s voice graced eardrums in Redlands. She played a nun in “The Sound of Music” performed at the Redlands Bowl Aug. 1 through 3. Fellow cast-member Ray Watts of Redlands, who portrayed Admiral von Schreiber, had nothing but compliments for the 26-year-old Horn. Watts called her a leader among the nuns and said she helped cast mates better themselves — a natural gesture for Horn, a voice teacher at California Baptist University in Riverside. “It’s been fun to know an Internet phenomenon like this and know what a good person she is,” Watts said.
