Television drama writer Leah Benavides (The Arrangement) unveils her past life as a singer and the most important yet unexplainable vocal performance of her life, a song for her grandma.
“To me, and I don’t think she’ll be embarrassed by me saying this publicly, but Leah is a boss. She’s that gritty coach that goes for the 2-point conversation at the end of the fourth quarter to win a game instead of just tying it. So, to catch Leah in a vulnerable moment, when talking about a song for her grandma, caught me off-guard. It was one of those moments in a conversation when you realize, “Oh snap, this is getting very personal,” and it made me appreciate Leah’s candor with her story even more. Even in that moment though, Leah powered through the story like a pro. This is a great conversation for anyone that loves their grandmothers and the unexplainable.”
