Question: Hi. Can you tell me who the blonde singer was on Ally McBeal? I have tried searching the Web and can find nothing. I love her voice and would like to learn more about her. Thank you.


Answer: That's singer-songwriter Vonda Shepard doing cover versions of such pop classics as "Someday We'll Be Together," "Tears on My Pillow," "Fire," "This Magic Moment," "It's So Easy" and a whole truckload of others on the show. A former backup singer for Jackson Browne, the New York native struggled to make a name in the biz before Ally creator David E. Kelley, a fan, brought her in to provide musical backup for the show, giving her career a big-time boost.

If you liked her work on the series, there are three best-selling compilations available: Songs from Ally McBeal, Heart and Soul: New Songs from Ally McBeal and Ally McBeal: A Very Ally Christmas. You might also enjoy such solo efforts as her two albums, The Radical Light and It's Good, Eve. If that's still not enough, on the way are: He Seder, She Seder: A Very Ally Passover and Up Your Ally: Still More Songs from Ally McBeal.

(Alright... so those last two aren't real.)
