Thank you ABC for allowing us to hear the full voice of Tony Award winner Sara Ramirez.

I didn't post more in the first thread because of the hover problem. At times this musical drama episode was a bit hokey, but I was stunned by Sara Ramirez for whom it appears that this episode was created.

I usually know more about the actors in shows we watch regularly. So to find out more about her professional career, first I went to IMDb and then Wikipedia. From Wikipedia:

Sara Ramírez is a Mexican-American actress and singer. She is known for her role as Callie Torres in Grey's Anatomy (2006–present) and as the original Lady of the Lake in the 2005 Broadway musical Spamalot, for which she won the Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical.

...After graduating from the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts in San Diego, California, she graduated from the Juilliard School in New York City, where she refined her skills as an actress.

She debuted on Broadway playing Wahzinak in Paul Simon's The Capeman (1998). In 1999, she appeared in The Gershwins' Fascinating Rhythm (1999) and received an Outer Critics Circle Award nomination for her role. She has also appeared in A Class Act (2001) and Dreamgirls (2001), and she performed in The Vagina Monologues with Tovah Feldshuh and Suzanne Bertish.

In 1998, she played the voice of Lammy in the video game UmJammer Lammy, a spin-off of PaRappa the Rapper, both on Sony's PlayStation console. She later reprised her role as Lammy in the PlayStation 2 video game sequel PaRappa the Rapper 2, and has a smaller role, unlike the game that preceded it.

In 2004, Ramírez was cast as the Lady of the Lake in the Eric Idle/John Du Prez musical Spamalot, based on the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The musical opened on Broadway in 2005 to widespread acclaim, and Ramírez in particular was singled out for her performance, winning several awards including the 2005 Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical.

Following her success on Broadway, Ramírez joined the cast of Grey's Anatomy in a recurring role as Dr. Calliope 'Callie' Torres in the show's second season. For the third season she became a series regular. On a special Grey's Anatomy-themed episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, she revealed that top executives from ABC loved her performance in Spamalot so much that they offered her a role in any ABC show she wanted. She picked Grey's, of which she was a fan. ...She did provide a cappella vocals in the song "Silent Night" for the soundtrack of the show's sixth season episode "Holidaze," airing November 19, 2009. On December 21, 2009, this version of the song was released as a single on iTunes. Her first solo release is an extended play scheduled for a March 27, 2011 release through the iTunes Store. It will reportedly include three original songs, as well as a recording of a song ... performed on Grey's Anatomy.

Wow!

Chandra Wilson I knew had stage musical experience and has a good voice. The others ...well... they all have a great regular job.

I thought the episode was very well done. The singing was a lot better than I thought it would be. Sara Ramirez did a terrific job, as well as Kevin McKidd. I was quite surprised with his ability.

Kudos to Chyler Leigh (Lexie Grey) as well, with her performance of "Breathe". My favorite Sara Ramirez performance last night was "The Story".
