As a recording artist some of her favorite career moments have been working on Barbara Streisand's CHRISTMAS MEMORIES, CHRISTINA AGUILERA'S BACK TO BASICS, as a soloist on COLD CASE, BATMAN FOREVER, and with Ms. Aguilera at the GRAMMY AWARDS.

Nancy's leading role as (Jewish Mother) Mrs. Zimmerman in the Feature Film SHARP, is now available on DVD and Netflix. Other favorite film credits include GANGSTER SQUAD with Ryan Gosling, Ron Howard's ANGELS & DEMONS, and a scene with Will Smith in ENEMY OF THE STATE.
