FEATURING A SPECIAL MUSICAL PERFORMANCE BY
China Forbes of Pink Martini
China Forbes keeps great company. Like Diana Ross, Etta James, Liza Minelli and Aretha Franklin before her, China received the very prestigious Ella Fitzgerald Award in 2022. Born and raised in Cambridge, Mass., China graduated cum laude from Harvard after winning the Jonathan Levy Prize for “most promising actor.” Her first album “Love Handle” (November Records) was released in 1995 and she was chosen to sing “Ordinary Girl,” the theme song to the TV show Clueless (ABC/UPN).
That same year, Harvard classmate Thomas Lauderdale invited her to sing with Pink Martini, and she has fronted the band ever since, as well as written many of its most beloved songs with Lauderdale, including “Sympathique (Je ne Veux Pas Travailler),” nominated in 2000 for song of the year at Les Victoires de la Musique, the French Grammys.
The list goes on of China’s incredible successes, late-night TV appearances and other famous talents with whom she’s shared the stage and recording studio. Click here to learn more about China.
