Women's March Song
Ann Hampton Callaway was inspired to write a song for the historic January 21, 2017 Women's Marches taking place in DC, NY and all over the globe called The Women's March Song (We Stand, We Rise, We March Together). Countless people are learning it to sing and call out during the parade. Here is Ann's impassioned anthem which features streaming lyrics to help you learn the song and also to sing with in the parade. Lift your voices loud and clear for democracy!

"Callaway opened the program, the nature of her instrument - with its bell-like high notes and throaty low ones - coming closest to the character of Vaughan's sound. That much was apparent on Callaway's superb 2014 album, "From Sassy to Divine: The Sarah Vaughan Project," but all the more on this occasion. Callaway lavished sumptuous colors on "I'm Gonna Live Till I Die," spun silken strands of melody in "Misty" and referenced Vaughan's ability to invent melodic lines during high-flying scat passages in "Lullaby of Birdland."
"The dramatic high point of the evening, however, belonged to Callaway, who found new meanings in Stephen Sondheim's most famous and least interesting song, "Send in the Clowns." To Callaway - who told the audience she'd heard Vaughan deliver the work during the singer's final concert - this wasn't just a statement on the follies of love. It was a lament, an outpouring, a guttural cry on the beauty and tragedy of life, some passages sung a cappella, leaving Callaway utterly exposed emotionally and vocally. And all the more powerful for it. The performance deserved the standing ovation it instantly received, prompting Alexander to wonder if the concert should even continue after that. It did, enriched - as from the beginning - with orchestrations from Vaughan's recordings transcribed by conductor Lindberg." - Howard Reich
Congratulations to Ann for the February 10th release of her single of "At the Same Time". It is available on iTunes, Apple Music and Amazon.com. Barbra Streisand went Platinum with the song on two CDs - Higher Ground and Timeless - reaching 6 million people. "At a time when divisiveness and fear is at an all time high, I wanted to release my version of the song to give our world something beautiful to focus on- our inherent unity."
