Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter and New York native Melissa Manchester brings her remarkable talents to AUPAC to close our season. Manchester’s career is remarkable not only for its longevity and accomplishments, but for its versatility. Following her stint as a founding member of Bette Midler’s Harlettes, Manchester’s tremendously successful solo career brought her critical and commercial acclaim. The “Midnight Blue” singer received her first Grammy nomination for Best Pop Female Vocal Performance for the Peter Allen/Carole Bayer Sager-penned “Don’t Cry Out Loud” in 1979, winning the Grammy in that category four years later for “You Should Hear How She Talks About You.” Two songs she performed, “Through The Eyes Of Love” and “The Promise,” were nominated for Oscars in the same year. She has appeared on both the large screen in movies (For The Boys) and small screen in television (Blossom), as well as the stage, including co-creating the Ovation-nominated ballroom dance extravaganza Fascinating Rhythms. Melissa Manchester will take us on a musical journey through her stellar career.
