"Midnight Sun," produced by Tulani Bridgewater-Kowalski, is billed as "the ultimate mixed tape, traversing landscapes of melodically mournful tales of love lost, heartrending ballads about forever afters and sultry promises of bliss."

The disc includes 11 remastered tracks such as Kurt Weill's "Speak Low"; Sammy Cahn's "I'm a Fool to Want You"/"I Fall In Love Too Easily"; Johnny Mercer's "Midnight Sun"; Alan Jay Lerner's "Here I'll Stay"; Charles Trenet's "Que Reste-t-Il?"; and Billie Holiday's "Good Morning Heartache." Also included on the CD is "L'Hymne à l'Amour," a track previously released exclusively as a bonus track in Japan.

The album is the fourth release on Bridgewater's own label, DDB Records.

Bridgewater won a Tony Award in 1975 for her performance in The Wiz. She has also been seen on Broadway in The 1940's Radio Hour. Bridgewater is also a three-time Grammy Award winner.
