It’s that time again! I have been performing for the annual “Forget-Me-Not” gala for the past 8 years. This event draws many celebrities who have family members suffering from Alzheimers. My favorite year was when the entire cast of the Sopranos attended and their table was right near the stage. Dominick Chianese (aka “Uncle Junior”) sang with the band and did a fantastic rendition of “Just In Time.”   I had recently been on that infamous (to me!) episode of “The Sopranos” (Season 5, “All Happy Families”) and even though no major cast members were at the filming of my scene, Edie Falco was so sweet to me at the gala and said we were “cast-mates.” Gotta love that Nurse Jackie!
