Marlene VerPlanck was once called “The finest canary in captivity” by Downbeat Magazine. She has done it all, from singing with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Tony Bennett and (believe it or not) Kiss … to studio singing including “Winston tastes good like a cigarette should” and “Mmm-mmm good, mmm-mmm good, that’s what Campbell’s Soups are mmm-mmm- good!” Whether singing background, cabaret, or Carnegie Hall, her career is a long string of successes. With her gorgeous, versatile voice, she has always known just how to tell the story.
