Trisha Yearwood is being applauded for role as Mary in a the live televised musical “The Passion.” The two-hour special was a modern day depiction of the last day of Jesus Christ. It aired last night on FOX. Yearwood admitted last week that she was “nervous about the role. She told “CMT” she prepared for it by taking the Trisha Yearwood part out. She said, “My only saving grace will be if in that moment, I’m not thinking ‘I’m Trisha Yearwood and I’m a really good singer and I need to hit this note.’ I just need to get the message across because I agree to play the most sacred woman in the universe.” She added, “I’m confident as a singer, but it is daunting.”
