“Her voice matches her looks—in every sense, a knockout.”… Billboard

Gorgeous and glamorous West Coast Songstress and former Bob Hope canary, Jan Daley, will appear at The Metropolitan Room in New York City on November 14 for one show, celebrating the release of her new CD on Encore Music Presents Records. “Where There’s Hope” is a tribute to the love songs from her former boss Bob Hope’s Legacy. Daley toured with Hope all over the wartime globe, including Viet Nam, as the singing star of his troop shows, entertaining over 100,000 GI Joes and Janes.

Her show will include fantastic vintage film of her in VietNam on one of the tours. See video of Jan Daley in Viet Nam here:

The CD, “Where There’s Hope,” was recorded with Les Brown Jr.’s Band of Renown, and produced by Brown.

The Metropolitan Room show is Sunday, November 14 at 7pm. She’ll be joined by the fabulous Shelly Markham on piano.

Daley conceived her tribute to the beloved funny man when she was asked by the Hope family to sing “Thanks For The Memory” (with special lyrics) at Hope’s funeral service. Always thought of mainly as one of the most important comedians in history, Hope was a charming song and dance man who debuted several of the American Songbook's most beloved tunes, including “I Can’t Get Started” and “It’s De-Lovely,” both of which are included on “Where There’s Hope. ” The disc also features Cole Porter’s "You Do Something to Me" and “Thanks For The Memory" by Leo Robin and Ralph Grainger.
