Our “Music in Your Life” series continues…
Carly Simon began stuttering severely when she was eight years old. A psychiatrist tried unsuccessfully to cure her stuttering. Instead, Simon realized when she would sing, the stuttering stopped. So, she began writing songs and learning to play the piano and guitar to help with her self- confidence. In her early teens, she teamed up with her older sister, Lucy, to form the singing duo, The Simon Sisters. Carly would embark on a solo career after Lucy got married and wanted to start a family. Carly Simon’s work has included such great songs as “You’re So Vain,” “Nobody Does It Better.” “Anticipation,” and more, earning her Grammy awards and induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and The Grammy Hall of Fame.
With her 1988 hit “Let the River Run,” from the film Working Girl, she became the first artist to win a Grammy Award, an Academy Award, and a Golden Globe Award for a song composed and written, as well as performed, entirely by a single artist.
