Award-Winning Jazz Vocalist DEBORAH SILVER
& 12X Grammy Nominee DENNIS LAMBERT
Release Celebrity-Packed Remix of
To Benefit Both The Actors Fund & Jazz Foundation of America
Featured Artists Include Tony Orlando, Melissa Manchester, Tom Wopat, Billy Gilman, Susan Anton & More!
With the whole world battling the current pandemic, two extraordinary musicians from Boca Raton have come together to write and record the inspirational COVID-19 BLUES. Deborah Silver, #1 Billboard jazz vocalist, and Dennis Lambert, the 12-time GRAMMY nominated songwriter, are today releasing a celebrity-packed remix of the recording with 100 percent of all sales going to The Actors Fund .
“The music community has been hit particularly hard by this pandemic, and both charitable organizations are currently helping those in our industry who are struggling with COVID, so this is our way to support fellow artists and many others during this difficult time,” says Silver, who came up with this concept during her 58 days of isolation while recovering from the virus. Hailed by Quincy Jones for her “strong and sultry vocals (that) are seductive and soul-soothing,” Silver is the 2020 Broadway World Best Commercial Recording Award Winner, whose best-selling albums include Glitter and Grits, The Gold Standards and Pure Silver.
“Our goal is to have musicians and performers across all genres record the COVID-19 BLUES for distribution on all music platforms with an accompanying video,” adds Lambert, who has helmed hit records for The Four Tops, Dusty Springfield, Glen Campbell, and more.
Among the artists who have donated their time and talent to perform on the remix are Tony Orlando, Melissa Manchester, Tom Wopat, Billy Gilman, Susan Anton, Casey Abrams, Siedah Garrett, Lisa Fisher, Allan Harris, Melissa Errico, the Sharpe Family Singers, Bernard Fowler, Daniel Emmet, Nita Whitaker, Luba Mason, Tony Tavares, Chubby Tavares, J.D. Nicholas, N’Kenge, and Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr.
In addition, many members of the general public—especially healthcare workers—contributed video segments to this remix of COVID-19 BLUES, with clips coming from Key West to India. Also heard on the recording are drummer Steve Jordan, Alan Palanker on keyboards, guitarist Ray Parker Jr., bass player Leland Sklar, Tom Scott on horns, and Mickey Raphael, who has been Willie Nelson’s harmonica player for nearly a half-century.
This new remix of COVID-19 BLUES is now accessible through such streaming services as Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, and Tidal by visiting

An Enchanting Evening with Julian Schwarz
is a Highlight of Palm Beach Symphony’s Masterwork Series
Livestreamed concert follows the Symphony’s 19th Annual Gala
In what promises to be an exciting evening of music, family and masterpieces, Palm Beach Symphony presents guest cellist Julian Schwarz reuniting with his father, Symphony music director Gerard Schwarz, on the podium. The special performance is livestreamed from the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 19.
The “Enchanting Evening with Julian Schwarz” is the third in the Masterworks Series and immediately follows the Palm Beach Symphony’s 19th Annual Gala: Sustaining the Note set for 6:30 p.m. A 100% tax deductible donation HERE , and will secure a private link to the Gala. The Gala auction, filled with exquisite experiences, is accessible HERE. The concert and gala are dedicated to Leslie Rose, Palm Beach Symphony chairman emeritus and honorary grand benefactor.
Acclaimed for his powerful tone, effortless virtuosity and extraordinarily large color palate, Julian performs Saint-Saëns’ Cello Concerto No. 1, a work which the Hartford Courant noted of a previous concert by Julian, is “filled with tricky figuration…Schwarz heard beyond the virtuosic elements. Warmth and a variety of colors emerged in his lyrical playing.” Julian also treats the audience to the melodious and tranquil respite of Dvořák: Silent Woods for cello and orchestra. Palm Beach Symphony presents two early works that foreshadowed their composers’ future greatness: William Grant Still’s jazz and blues influenced expression of the Black experience Darker America and Mendelssohn’s fluid and ultimately fiery Symphony No. 1.
Since being awarded first prize at the inaugural Schoenfeld International String Competition in 2013, Julian has led an active career as a soloist performing in the U.S. and abroad. Performing as a duo with pianist Marika Bournaki, he was awarded first prize at the inaugural Boulder International String Competition’s “The Art of Duo,” and the pair subsequently embarked on an extensive 10-recital tour of China. Schwarz is a founding member of the New York-based Frisson Ensemble and the Mile-End Trio. An ardent supporter of new music, he has premiered concertos by Richard Danielpour, Samuel Jones and Lowell Liebermann and recital works by Paul Frucht, Scott Ordway, Jonathan Cziner, Gavin Fraser, Alex Weiser and Ofer Ben-Amots.
The concert will be performed before a limited invited audience at the Kravis in accordance with health and safety guidelines following CDC recommendations and guidance from local and state officials.
The concert also will be broadcast digitally in high-quality video and audio which can be viewed for an entire week following the concert on computers, tablets, smartphones and TVs. Virtual passes are $30 by phone at (561) 281-0145.
The Masterworks Series concludes with guest pianist Alexander Toradze on Saturday, May 22 at 7:30 p.m. All dates, times, programs, artists, venues and ticket prices are subject to change without notice.
