Ms. Goodwin has been invited to join an A-list of multiple award-winning singers from the worlds of Jazz, Broadway, Cabaret and Pop which include Christine Ebersole, Laurel Masse, Amra-Faye Wright and Marilyn Maye, Benny Mardones, Jessica Sanchez, Darren Criss and Aaron Tveit.

Her current album titled “Feeling Good" features Ms. Goodwin performing "unplugged" versions of some of her favorite Great American Songbook standards.



"Julia Goodwin, the Feinstein protégée who opened the show, is a phenomenally gifted teenager from Baldwinsville, N.Y., who sang lucid unornamented renditions of "Feeling Good," and "Darn That Dream." She is as impressive as any of the vocal wunderkinds on "The Voice".
