Nichelle Nichols, who began her career as a singer, has released a single, called Fly Me to the Moon.
The release was timed to coincide with the forty-seventh anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
Produced by David Salas, Fly Me to the Moon is a “brilliant rendition of Bart Howard‘s immortal standard.”
According to a press release announcing the single, “Ms. Nichols was thrilled to record Fly Me to the Moon at the famous Salas Studios, to further accentuate her belief in diversity in music and culture, in the performing and recording arts.”
“All of my Star Trek fans have truly become like my family,” said Nichols. “When I decided to record Fly Me to the Moon. It was my way to give back to every one of them. The song is a special one for me, and recording it was one of the best ways I knew to share my love for singing, and give them a special love song from me that will last forever.”
Fly Me to the Moon is available from iTunes and Spotify.
