DON’T CRY OUT LOUD: Melissa Manchester To Appear At FAU

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: FAU) — The Advisory Board of Florida Atlantic University’s School of the Arts in the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters will host a reception and intimate conversation with Melissa Manchester on Tuesday, Feb. 21  from 6 to 8:30 p.m. The event will take place at Theatre Lab, located in Parliament Hall, 777 Glades Road,  Boca Raton campus. Tickets are $100 and can be purchased by visiting fauf.fau.edu/MM or by calling 561-297-2337.

Manchester’s extraordinary career began when the native New Yorker signed her first publishing deal at 17. Soon she was backing up Bette Midler as a founding member of the Harlettes, and also studied songwriting with Paul Simon at New York University. Following the stint with Midler, Manchester’s solo career earned critical praise and commercial success.

Manchester’s recording, “Don’t Cry Out Loud,” delivered her first Grammy nomination for Best Pop Female Vocal Performance in 1979, and she won the award in the same category four years later for “You Should Hear How She Talks About You.” Two of her songs, “Through the Eyes of Love” and “The Promise,” were nominated for Academy Awards in the same year. Today, Manchester teaches music to students at the University of Southern California.

FAU’s Making Waves Award will be presented to Manchester at the event. This award was launched by the School of the Arts in 2012 as an opportunity to recognize artists who have made a significant contribution to the arts and education on a regional, national or international scale.  Past recipients have included Broadway legend and musical theater composer Charles Strouse; actor director and educator André De Shields; singer/songwriter Elisabeth von Trapp; and actor Hal Linden.
