Here is the second album from American singer-actress Idina Menzel. Unable to find acting gigs, Menzel began recording the album in 1999, but was dropped by Hollywood Records after her previous album Still I Can't Be Still flopped. In 2004, Menzel self-released Here, despite it being incomplete. While Menzel was performing in Wicked which earned her a big rise to fame, she sold copies of the album at the Gershwin Theatre. The album has sold around 2,000 copies and is currently out-of-print.[1][2][3][4]

To promote the album, Menzel performed a one night only concert at the Zipper Theatre in NYC on December 13th, 2004 (on a dark night from Wicked) entitled Idina: For My Friends. Following filming the film version of Rent in 2005, she performed a set of mini concerts in Massachusetts including the Provincetown Theatre, Regetta Bar, and the Hot Tin Roof.
