Known for her robust voice and rich tones, jazz vocalist Renee Manning came to fame in the jazz world as a big band singer with the Mel Lewis Orchestra from 1983 to 1989 -- the longest tenure of any vocalist associated with the organization. She's since performed with the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Sir Roland Hanna, Mark Murphy, Howard Johnson, Joe Williams, the Mingus Big Band and the Chico O'Farrill Afro-Cuban Orchestra. As a solo artist, Manning's most recent album, All Grown Up, showcases the Grammy-nominated singer's soothing, quieter side. Learn More

Watch the video for “It’s Raining Men” by Martha Wash and the Weather Girls.
Martha Wash scored her first hit in the ‘80s with The Weather Girls (the former backup singers for soul singer Sylvester). "It’s Raining Men" became a worldwide phenomenon, peaking at No. 2 on the U.K. Singles chart and No. 1 on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart. The track continues to receive regular play in clubs and on dance radio stations to this day. After The Weather Girls disbanded, Wash continued to contribute her talents to various house and dance tracks, including singing lead vocals on the C+C Music Factory’s smash hit “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” (although she was never formally credited). Wash has also released two solo albums, Martha Wash (1993) and The Collection (1998). The first of these albums featured the third smash hit of Wash’s career, “Carry On.”
