Over the past few years I had the great pleasure to promote Marlene’s music and live appearances.
One of the sweetest, nicest people you’d ever want to meet and a beautiful voice too.
She loved telling me stories about growing up in Newark and working in her parent’s Italian restaurant.
Here’s a nice piece that ran in The NATIONAL ITALIAN AMERICAN FOUNDATION’S Ambassador Magazine
Here’s a little video I shot at Birdland back in 2016
