Grammy Award Winner Melissa Manchester
Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, and actress Melissa Manchester returns to Feinstein’s at the Nikko with her new show, "The Fellas." More than 25 years after Melissa Manchester released “Tribute,” her 1989 album that honored the great female singers who influenced her, she turns the tables with "The Fellas," a radiant new encomium to the men, including Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormé, Tony Bennett, and Dean Martin, and the iconic songs they made famous. In this intimate evening, Manchester will salute the men (and ladies) of song, as well as perform several of her own classic hits.
Manchester’s career is remarkable not only for its longevity and accomplishments, but for its versatility. Following her time as a founding member of the Harlettes—Bette Midler’s backing singers and dancers—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 in 1979 for the Peter Allen/Carole Bayer Sager-penned “Don’t Cry Out Loud,” winning the Grammy in that category four years later for “You Should Hear How She Talks About You.” Manchester has also had her songs recorded by Barbra Streisand, Roberta Flack, Dusty Springfield, Alison Krauss, Kenny Loggins and many others. Two songs she performed, “Through The Eyes Of Love” and “The Promise,” were nominated for Oscars in the same year.
