You might be aware of Jean Louisa Kelly as Rowena Martin and her moving vocal of "Someone To Watch Over Me" in "Mr. Holland's Opus," or perhaps from "Uncle Buck," or her 6 year stint on the TV sitcom, "Yes Dear." But perhaps you don't know, her deep passion for the American Standard Songbook, which is on clear display on For My Folks, which just hit digital platforms, stores and radio stations across the globe!

This 13-song project showcases a stunning new rendition of her signature song "Someone to Watch Over Me," complete with an a cappella introduction and is dedicated to her parents and fans

The album features moving renditions of timeless gems such as "Singin' in the Rain," "The Man that Got Away," "Danny Boy," and an especially heart-tugging version of "As Time Goes By." Gorgeous and inventive musical arrangements by producer Todd Schroeder and special guest John Lloyd Young (star of "Jersey Boys" on Broadway and on film), who lends a sparkling presence to "For Me and My Gal," round out the delicious album.
