How Glory Goes is the second album from Audra McDonald, released in 2000. Unlike her debut album Way Back to Paradise, which featured songs from younger composers, this album contains a mixture of new and old songs, mostly from musical theatre. Five of the songs were written by Harold Arlen, and two by Adam Guettel, including the title track.[3]
