Ann has been called “an American Diva,” and she delivers Broadway, jazz, pop, and the American Songbook with “the class and clarity of Waterford Glass.” In the 2009 Advocate story detailing her coming out, Ann said, “I’m not only a singer, but also a citizen. There is more work to be done, and I want to be a part of it.”
Best known for her Tony-nominated performance in Swing! and for writing and singing the theme song to TV’s The Nanny, Ann Hampton Callaway is a Platinum-award winning lyricist, composer and pianist, and has songs featured on six of Barbra Streisand’s CDs. She is the only composer to have collaborated with Cole Porter, and her albums have reached the Billboard Jazz Charts. She sings regularly with the world’s top orchestras, including Cleveland Orchestra in 2010, and just this month with the Boston Pops and at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
When not touring solo or with her sister Liz as The Callaway Sisters, Ann and her partner Kari Strand live in New York. Enjoy these clips of Ann Hampton Callaway performing with Liza Minnelli, the Barcelona Jazz Orchestra and more!
