Callaway also performs jazz songs she has recorded for films, including “Come Rain or Come Shine” from The Good Shepherd, starring Robert DeNiro, “The Nearness of You” from Last Holiday starring QueenLatifah, and “Pourquoi,” a song she wrote for the new film Blind, starring Alec Baldwin and Demi Moore.
