Jean Louisa Kelly Presents A Personal Collection Of Songs From The American Standards And Musical Theater


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Today, Michael B. Sutton, President of iMerica Entertainment, announced that stage and screen star Jean Louisa Kelly has just released an electrifying new single of the classic standard "Where or When." The overwhelming response to this single and sheer excitement it's created have demanded it be sent to jazz radio stations nationwide immediately.
What's more, on October 27th the album in which the single finds its home, "For My Folks," will hit digital platforms, stores and radio stations across the globe!

Jean Louisa Kelly stole the hearts of many singing the classic "Someone to Watch Over Me" in the acclaimed film "Mr. Holland's Opus," starring Richard Dreyfuss as a frustrated composer turned influential high school music teacher. A child of the stage and musical theater, Jean grew up in a small town in New England where she honed her skills in singing, ballet, tap and jazz dance and performed in community theatre and summer stock. At 15 she hit Broadway in the original cast of "Into the Woods," and at 16 she was cast opposite John Candy in the classic John Hughes film "Uncle Buck." Though the silver screen held its allures, Ms. Kelly took a hiatus to attend Columbia College where she got a BA in English before returning to the movies. She then starred as Luisa in Michael Ritchie's film version of the long running musical "The Fantasticks" before settling into 6 years on the CBS hit sitcom "Yes, Dear." When motherhood called, Jean focused her energies on her children, simultaneously experiencing a rebirth of creativity. She began composing, first her children's album "Color of Your Heart," and then her two EPs "Willing" and "Relax, Nothing is Under Control." She continued working on screen in movies and television, composing two singles for films in which she appeared.

Now, sparked by a desire to express her gratitude for her parents and for the fans who craved such an album, she is releasing a 13-song project showcasing a stunning new rendition of her signature song "Someone to Watch Over Me," complete with an a cappella introduction.

The album features moving renditions of timeless gems such as "Singin' in the Rain," "The Man that Got Away," "Danny Boy," and an especially heart-tugging version of "As Time Goes By." Gorgeous and inventive musical arrangements by producer Todd Schroeder and special guest John Lloyd Young (star of "Jersey Boys" on Broadway and on film), who lends a sparkling presence to "For Me and My Gal," round out the delicious album.
