Don’t miss a BRAND NEW episode of The Women’s Eye Podcast with Catherine Anaya as I talk with 15-year-old singer-songwriter, Evie Clair. You know Evie from America’s Got Talent, Season 12, where she advanced to the finals and wowed millions of viewers with a stunning performance dedicated to her father who had passed away just days before.

Evie tells me about how that experience has changed her life and how she balances being a teenager with a worldwide fan-following while continuing to make music and perform across the country.

Plus, Evie is also a motivational speaker who travels the country talking to youth about dealing with grief. She tells me how she’s able to connect with others her age and how she plans to one day use her music to inspire differently abled children and adults.

Tracy was a founding member of the improv troupe The Groundlings with her sister and Saturday Night Live alum, Laraine Newman. She had won an Emmy and a Peabody for co-writing the “coming out” episode of Ellen. She wrote for Cheers; and she co-created According to Jim.

But just when most people start thinking retirement, Tracy did a rewrite on her career. Now she tours all over the country with her band, The Reinforcements, and is currently working on her second CD.

In the 60’s, she scored a significant song publishing deal and even appeared on The Tonight Show. By returning now to music, Tracy is now proving age is just a number.
