Ann Jillian

Here is a beautiful song written by the famous Steve Allen, and performed by the great singer and actress Ann Jillian.
Ann Jillian (born Ann Jura Nauseda in 1950 in Cambridge, Massachusetts) is an American actress born to Roman Catholic Lithuanian immigrant parents. Jillian has been acting since 1961 when she played "Little Bo Peep" in the Disney film, "Babes In Toyland". She appeared in the Rosalind Russell-Natalie Wood 1962 movie version of "Gypsy". She later became a regular on the 1960's sitcom "Hazel" and did voice acting for "Scooby Doo" and "Sealab 2020" in the early 1970's. She is best known for her early 1980's TV series, "It's a Living", a sitcom that elevated Jillian to sex symbol status. During her time on the series for the ABC run, she portrayed Mae West in a made-for-TV film. Jillian appeared in more than 25 films, mostly for TV. She also starred in two short-lived sitcoms, an early 1980's effort entitled "Jennifer Slept Here" in which she played a ghost in a variation of "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" and a 1989 series entitled, simply, "Ann Jillian". In the mid-1980's, the then 35-year-old actress made headlines when she was diagnosed with breast cancer and she became a vocal advocate for cancer research and prevention. Her own cancer was beaten and her battle with the disease was chronicled in the top-rated 1988 made-for-TV film, "The Ann Jillian Story" in which Jillian portrayed herself.
Jillian has continued to act. Her TV and film credits have been sporadic since the late 1990's, as she decided to devote herself to raising her son and to promoting breast cancer issues. Today, she mostly works as a motivational speaker and also performs as a singer in corporate and symphony pops circles.
