Nina sang 'At Last' a'capella - and brought the house down. Then to Nina, Patti continued:) 'I'm not going to lie to you, it's a hard life. But you? You, Miss Nina, do not let anybody or anything get in your way!' 'I've produced over a dozen Broadway and off-Broadway musical productions and have been a League member and Tony-voter for 10 years. I see great talent every day and I can state with complete conviction that Nina is such a talent.' JEFF ROWLAND (Broadway producer: Rent, Victor Victoria, PBS: 3 Mo Tenors, Julie Andrews etc.)
