Molly Ringwald

Silver Screen Icon & Jazz Sensation

Well known for her roles on stage and screen, Ringwald earned a Golden Globe at age 13 and went on to star in numerous iconic films, including Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink. On stage, she has starred in Broadway productions of the Pulitzer Prize-winning How I Learned to Drive, the revival of Cabaret, Tony-nominated Enchanted April and the West End production of When Harry Met Sally. However, little known about the star is her bona fide classical jazz background. The daughter of blind jazz pianist Bob Ringwald, Molly first began performing jazz at the tender age of six with the Fulton Street Jazz Band. Since her debut Jazz album, Except Sometimes, was released on Concord Records in April 2013, she and her band have performed 200 concerts in over seven countries, and with songs such as “Don’t You Forget About Me,” she continues to show off those sultry pipes to audiences around the world.

“The spin she brings to the American Songbook is thoroughly contemporary.” ~ The New York Times
