Marjorie Barnes, former lead singer of popsoul vocal group The Fifth Dimension and starring on Broadway in Hair and Dreamgirls, now releases on ZenneZ Records her album Tenderly, a tribute to Sarah Vaughan. “I tried to choose songs that would be representative of her long career; from her earliest pop successes such as Passing Strangers, originally sung in duet with Billy Eckstein, to her Mercury recording years, the Gershwin Live album, and her Brazilian repertoire.  Included, as well, are Tenderly and Misty, two iconic songs associated with her”, says Marjorie.
