Celebrating her 30th Anniversary Concert Tour

A little Jewish girl from Long Island, Leslie Joy Wunderman, made it against the odds, sold over 75 million records, worked with Michael Jackson, Elton John, and Whitney Houston, and more, and is now on her 30th-Anniversary Tour — this is a parable of female self-empowerment which captures Taylor Dayne’s life growing up in a blue-collar home, becoming a chart-topping musician circumnavigating the globe, rediscovering faith and traditions, and being a single-mother of twins by choice.

It's also a candid glimpse into the music industry, told with a frank, heartfelt female voice for fans interested in Michael Jackson, Prince, Whitney Houston, and others who cross-pollinate between the movie, television, and music industries.

Sally responds with grace and optimism.
