Jazz singer, songwriter and actress René Marie launched her career in 1999 with her self-released debut album, Renaissance, and quickly found success as a performer and recording artist. Her 2013 album, I Wanna Be Evil, is the first ever tribute album to the late Eartha Kitt. You can hear Kitt on an episode of Piano Jazz from 1993.

On this Song Travels, Marie explains what led to her recent project and performs "C'est si bon" and "My Heart Belongs to Daddy" with host Michael Feinstein at the keys.
