The Nancy LaMott Room is named for the late cabaret star whose signature tunes included "Help Is on the Way" and "Listen to My Heart." LaMott, who lost her battle with cancer in 1995 at the age of 44, was beloved by fans for a voice that could be soft and sweet one minute and big and belty the next. Many critics agreed 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 included “Beautiful Baby,” “Come Rain or Come Shine: The Songs of Johnny Mercer,” “My Foolish Heart,” “Just in Time for Christmas” and “Listen to My Heart” as well as the posthumously issued “What’s Good About Goodbye?"
