Channing Film Gets Honor As She Releases New Music!

Carol Channing gets some love from St. Louis, MO. Director, Dori Berinstein's film, Carol Channing: Larger Than Life, was awarded Best Documentary Feature by the 20th annual St. Louis International Film Festival. I'm still upset that the Nashville Film Festival didn't show this docufilm on my favorite Broadway Baby! They lost themselves a little blessin'!

I was present while much of the documentary was filmed on location so you can only imagine how anxious I am to see Carol's story displayed on the big screen. Carol and her husband Harry Kullijian are dear friends. I'm so proud of the work that they are doing to try and get arts education back into public schools. It's just as important as Science. Studies show students do better in academics when exposed to the arts yet cutbacks take the arts away each year til our kids are nearly unexposed to them.

Aside from winning the film festival honor Carol has more reasons to celebrate as people seem to love her Gospel Music album, For Heaven's Sake. A follow up recording is soon to hit retail, True To The Red White and Blue, which includes guest appearances with Country Soul Star, T. Graham Brown, and Hee Haw's Lulu Roman. You can purchase both For Heaven's Sake or True To The Red White and Blue on itunes.

True to the Red, White, and Blue Track Listing:
1. Dear Old Glory, 2. God Bless America, 3. Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree (Duet with Country Star T. Graham Brown), 4. Amazing Grace, 5. Before The Parade Passes By, 6. Over There, 7. George M. Cohan Medley (Yankee Doodle Dandy/Grand Ole Flag), 8. St. Louis Blues, 9. America The Beautiful, 10. His Eye Is On The Sparrow (with Special Guest Lulu Roman), 11. Battle Hymn Of The Republic

By the way, don't you wish Hollywood would let us see more legends like Miss Channing on the BIG SCREEN again?
