Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth interview with Melissa Manchester, Legendary Singer / Songwriter 

About Harvey's guest: 

Today’s special guest is one of the greatest singer-songwriters and performers of our time.  Melissa Manchester started out in 1971 as one of the “Staggering Harlettes”, the backup group to Bette Midler.  But soon after launching her tremendously successful solo career, she had her first top 10 hit, "Midnight Blue".   

A quick succession of hit songs followed, including “Come in From the Rain”, “Whenever I Call You Friend”, “Don’t Cry Out Loud”, which earned her a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Female Performance, and “Through the Eyes of Love” and “I’ll Never Say Goodbye”, which BOTH got Academy Award nominations in the same year, and “You Should Hear How She Talks About You”, which won her a Grammy for Best Pop Female  Performance, AND her wonderful version of Dionne Warwick's classic, "Walk on By".  And I can’t resist mentioning my personal favourites, “Fire in the Morning”, “It’s All in the Sky Above”, “Help is on the Way”, and “Feeling’ for You” from her FABULOUS jazz album, “You Gotta Love the Life”.    

Her rich, powerful voice is unparalleled.  Her career is remarkable, not only for its longevity and accomplishments, but for its versatility.  She’s literally done it all.  She appeared with Bette Midler in the movie, “For the Boys”.  She co-wrote and starred in the musical, “I Sent a Letter to my Love”.  She’s composed songs for movies.  She starred in the national tours of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Music of the Night” AND “Song and Dance”, which I had the pleasure of seeing in Toronto.   She created the role of “Maddy” on the hit TV series “Blossom”.  Last November she was inducted into the Great American Songbook Foundation Hall of Fame.    

AND NOW, she’s released her 22nd album:  a brand new double CD LIVE CONCERT from 1977 that has NEVER been publicly available until now.
