Kristin Chenoweth - Kristin Chenoweth Inducted Into Home State Music Hall

Actress Kristin Chenoweth skipped filming on her upcoming show Good Christian Belles on Thursday (10Nov11) to be inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.
The screen star made her name on Broadway and has more recently been showing off her singing skills with a recurring role on hit U.S. series Glee - and now officials in her native Oklahoma have handed her the state's top musical honour.
Chenoweth beamed with pride as she picked up her prize at a ceremony in Muskogee, and later spoke of her delight at landing the accolade.
She says, "I was inducted last year into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, but when the Music Hall of Fame said they wanted to induct me... there was no decision for me. I had to get it in my contract to come here. I was like, you all are going to see me, I'm coming.
"Singing has been the greatest love of my life. It is definitely an extension of my soul and something that God saw fit to give me."
In a post on her Twitter.com page, she adds, "Thank you everyone who came to Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame! Wonderful honor and fun night."
Other honourees included late composer Ralph Blane and The Ventures star Nokie Edwards.
