LOS ANGELES (AP) - Broadway superstar Audra McDonald is adding a new chapter to her long history with Lincoln Center in New York.

PBS said Tuesday the singer-actress is the new host of "Live From Lincoln Center."

McDonald will emcee seven broadcasts from December through spring 2013, starting Dec. 13 with "The Richard Tucker Opera Gala." She will host and perform in the New York Philharmonic's New Year's Eve gala.

The 42-year-old McDonald said she was thrilled to host the series. Her five Tony Awards include a trophy this year for "The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess."
