The new video for Thoughts And Prayers
I started writing "Thoughts and Prayers" the night I opened at Birdland last year with my saxophonist Jimmy Greene who had lost his beloved daughter Ana at the age of six at the Sandy Hook Shooting. He told me that he didn't think there would ever be gun control in this country because of the overwhelming power of the NRA. Knowing the grief that he and his wife Nelba had suffered, I went to my dressing room and started penning the lyrics. Fast forward to the Parkland Shooting. I was in Florida the day it happened and so upset by the loss and the callous response of politicians who were unwilling to take any action that I finally finished the song.
Ann recently premiered a critically acclaimed night of songs and stories in celebration of one of America's most beloved artists, Linda Ronstadt at Feinstein's/54 Below in NYC.
