The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents An Evening with Leslie Odom, Jr. on Saturday, May 4, 2024.

Leslie Odom, Jr. is a multifaceted, award-winning vocalist, songwriter, author, and actor. With a career that spans all performance genres, he has received recognition with Tony and Grammy Awards, as well as multiple Emmy and Academy Award nominations for his excellence and achievements in Broadway, television, film, and music.

Most recently, Odom starred in Rian Johnson’s Knives Out sequel, "Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery", streaming worldwide on Netflix. In December 2022 the film debuted as Netflix’s number one movie in its premiere week and has already secured its position as the fifth most popular movie of all time on the platform. Odom is currently in production on the highly anticipated sequel to the original iconic film The Exorcist. The film is scheduled to be released in October 2023.

In 2020 Odom starred in and performed the songs of legendary singer Sam Cooke in the critically acclaimed Amazon film adaptation of "One Night in Miami…", directed by Regina King. His portrayal of the soul icon was met with widespread praise and critical acclaim, earning him nominations for an Academy Award, BAFTA Award, Critics' Choice Award, Golden Globe Awards, and Screen Actors Guild Awards, among others. King also enlisted Odom to write, compose, and perform the film’s original song, Speak Now, for which he was nominated for an Oscar and has since earned him a Critics’ Choice Award for Best Song as well as several other award nominations.

Odom recently starred in The Many Saints of Newark, a prequel to David Chase’s Award-winning HBO series, The Sopranos, that was released in theaters and on HBO Max in October 2021. He can also be heard voicing the character of Owen Tillerman in Season 3 of the Apple TV+ animated musical-comedy series Central Park, for which he received a 2020 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance.

Well known for his breakout role as the original Aaron Burr in the smash hit Broadway musical Hamilton, Odom won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical and a Grammy Award for his performance as a principal soloist on the original cast recording. He made his Broadway debut in RENT at the age of 17. He also starred opposite Lin-Manuel Miranda and Karen Olivo in a 2014 City Center Encores! revival of Jonathan Larson’s "Tick, Tick…Boom!".
