Photo Flash: Remembering the Late Carol Hall

As BroadwayWorld sadly reported last week, composer/lyricist/actress Carol Hall passed away at age 82. We remember the Broadway veteran below.

Carol Hall's first recorded song was "Jenny Rebecca," intended it only as a gift for a friend who had just had a baby, but it was immediately picked up and performed by cabaret legend Mabel Mercer, and recorded soon after by a young up-and-coming singer.... Barbra Streisand.

Since then, her songs have been performed by such extraordinary singers as Tony Bennett, Harry Belafonte, Barbara Cook, Lena Horne, Chita Rivera, Michael Feinstein, Mark Murphy, Mabel Mercer, Olivia Newton-John, Maureen McGovern, Miriam Makeba, RuPaul, Frederica von Stade, Kermit the Frog and Big Bird.
