A new documentary about the life of the late singer Nancy LaMott will be broadcast Feb. 14, on WLIW-TV in New York. LaMott, who lost her battle with cancer four years at the age of 44, was blessed with one of, if not the, most beautiful voices in the cabaret world: a rich, lush, honey-toned sound that could be soft, sweet and creamy one minute and big and belty the next. She also possessed a remarkable ability to find the emotional center of any song, bringing a lyric to life as honestly as possible. LaMott's solo recording credits include “Beautiful Baby,” “Come Rain or Come Shine: The Songs of Johnny Mercer,” “My Foolish Heart,” “Just in Time for Christmas,” “Listen to My Heart” and the posthumously issued “What’s Good About Goodbye?"
The documentary airs at 9 PM.
