In 1980, Melissa became the first recording artist in the history of the Academy Awards to have two nominated movie themes in a single year, Through The Eyes Of Love from Ice Castles and I’ll Never Say Goodbye from The Promise, and to perform them both on the Oscar telecast. She has starred in the national tours of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Music Of The Night and Song And Dance, and created the role of Maddy, the title character’s mother, on the NBC hit TV series Blossom. Nominated for a Grammy in 1980 for Don’t Cry Out Loud, she won the Grammy Award for best female vocalist in 1982 singing You Should Hear How She Talks About You. She has also composed music for the animated features The Great Mouse Detective and Lady And The Tramp II, the sequel to the Disney classic.  In addition to composing the scores for the theatrical musicals I Sent A Letter To My Love and Sweet Potato Queens, she also cowrote the radio mainstays Midnight Blue, Come In From The Rain and Whenever I Call You Friend.

We will talk about Melissa’s career, life, and surviving and creating miracles in the midst of Covid-19 AND of course, her positive approach to creativity in the midst of a pandemic. Since the 1970s, her songs have been carried by adult contemporary radio stations. She has also appeared on television, in films, and on stage. Her debut album, Home to Myself, was released in 1973; Manchester co-wrote many of its songs with Carole Bayer Sager. Two years later, Manchester's album Melissa produced her first top-ten hit, "Midnight Blue", which enjoyed 17 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

She also performed the song live on Burt Sugarman's television series Midnight Special in 1974. Manchester appeared with Richie Havens, Melanie, and Frankie Valli as a contributor and performer in the 1977 NBC special documentary "How the Beatles Changed the World". Manchester collaborated with Kenny Loggins to co-write Loggins' 1978 hit duet with Stevie Nicks, "Whenever I Call You Friend". In 1979, she performed two nominated songs on the Academy Awards show: "I'll Never Say Goodbye" (from The Promise) and "Through the Eyes of Love" (theme song from Ice Castles).
