KELLERMAN, DAVID TEAM TOGETHER FOR SHOW.
PALMDALE - Actress Sally Kellerman will sing standards and blues songs Saturday at the Palmdale Playhouse in a cabaret show put together by Oscar-winning lyricist Hal David.
Some of the songs to be sung on Saturday include the standards ``Sunday Kind of Love'' and ``Long Way From St. Louis.''
``Effortless is what I wanted it to be for me and the audience, which I think I accomplished,'' Kellerman said of the show.
Kellerman, an Academy Award nominee for the 1970 movie ``M*A*S*H,'' has recorded a CD that will be released in the next few months. ``Body Parts'' includes the songs ``Cheek to Cheek,'' ``Heart and Soul,'' and ``just anything to do with body parts,'' said Kellerman.
The stage show was put together by David, who wrote the words for songs including ``Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head, ``Walk on By'' and ``Alfie,'' with musical direction by Chris Caswell. Caswell is also the musical director for Paul Williams, a friend of Kellerman.
Singing with Kellerman at the playhouse will be singers Michael Orland, Gene Reed and Bob Esty. Esty has written songs for Cher; Orland works on the television series ``American Idol'' teaching songs to contestants; Reed performs with The Dan Band.
Besides singing at places like the Roxie, Kellerman does voice-over work and acts. Her most recent film is ``Open House,'' to be featured at the Sundance film festival.
``This is the best response I have ever had,'' Kellerman said of her singing. ``It has taken me this long to really find my own.''
Kellerman's show is 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the playhouse, 38334 10th St. E. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for youth 12 and younger. For tickets or information, call (661) 267-5685.
