Jennifer played Nancy Sinatra in the show AMERICAN DREAMS - hear her sing


American Dreams (TV Series) 
Nancy Sinatra

- The 7-10 Split (2004) ... Nancy Sinatra

  • Set to the soundtrack of the '60s, a Philadelphia family moves toward the cultural upheaval in the years ahead. The Pryors' teen daughter Meg tries to shed her "good girl" image by hanging with her worldly friend Roxanne and pursuing a dream of being an "American Bandstand" dancer. Meg's emerging personality, and the changes her mother's going through, don't sit well with Meg's father

Time enjoys a liberal skip in this episode. At first, it works out to be November 1965 with "Days of Our Lives" debuting (coincidentally, most people missed the first few days since 11/8/65 was the big Northeast blackout) and songs like "Keep On Dancing" by the Gentrys(#4, Nov. '65). Then we witness Nancy Sinatra singing "These Boots Were Made for Walking" (#1, Feb. '66) Then it seems to skip to Mr. Pryor hanging a sign for Mother's Day sales(May '66?). And finally we hear "Sunny"(#2, August '66).

"Jennifer Love Hewitt and her husband Brian Hallisay are thrilled to announce the birth of their daughter," the rep said.
Her "husband." See what they did there? Nothing quite rolls off the tongue like "Jennifer Love Hewitt-Hallisay."
The rep added that "Autumn James Hallisay was born on November 26."

No word yet on the moniker's inspiration or additional birth details.

Another source told the mag that Hewitt, 34, and Hallisay, 35, "got married recently in private."
That contradicts what the well-endowed "Party of Five" alum said at a Pampers event last August. 
"I'm not putting that on myself also! We're going to wait," she said of getting married. "I'm going to get down and be cute again and then we'll be ready to go.",0,2613428.story#ixzz2lsoD1Fcl


  "Sunny" performed by
Joe McBride 

Uploaded on Apr 16, 2011

From the CD "Grace," 1992

Track 3 on the GRACE disc
Material written on YouTube

This is a very nice redition of the song originally done by 

Bobby Hebb. Joe does the vocals and piano work here and 

is   accompanied by some heavy hitters: Stanley Turrentine, 

tenor sax; Henry Johnson, guitar; Gerald Veasley, bass;

Dennis Durick, bass; and Rafeal Cabranes, congas. 

This was one of my favorite songs even as a little kid, and is 

still today. Enjoy!

Review by 

From the Latin-infused opening track, "SeƱor Amor," to the gospel-tinged vocal performance on the ballad "For All We Know," pianist/vocalist Joe McBride delivers one of his most diverse performances on record with Grace. Featuring the added support of saxophonists Stanley Turrentine and Kirk Whalum, this is the one album in McBride's oeuvre that lands more on the jazz side of the jazz-pop fence. Easily recommended to smooth jazz fans, Grace is the place to start listening to McBride -- but it might also be the place to stop listening, as most of his other albums do not live up to this one.
