This cabaret legend is doing it right. She’s been live streaming performances from her home with great success. Watch how it’s done, then you can do it too.￼I don’t know about you but once the pandemic began I started cleaning...my closets...my mind...and eventually my vault of music.
You wouldn’t believe the things I found gathering dust in the vault. Songs I haven’t sung in decades, all the way through to what I thought was lost to history. Songs like Make Someone Happy and my 1973 single for Epic records, Our Day Will Come.
So many memories. So many stories.
Join me on Zoom as I reminisce on these found treasures: the music, the stories, and the lessons learned with the hindsight of a lifetime in entertainment.
The debut performance is Saturday, October 3 @ 4pm PT / 7PM ET. As usual, a limited number of after show meet and greets will be available.
For those of you in the UK (or who just want to watch again), we will replay the performance on Sunday, October 4 @ Noon PT / 8PM BST.
Can’t wait to see you all again!
