Lisa talks with singer and songwriter Jennifer Warnes about her diverse career. Warnes got her start on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in the 1960's. Soon after, she was touring Europe with Leonard Cohen. She's had hits on the country and pop charts. Her duet with Joe Cocker, "Up Where We Belong," went to number one and won an Academy Award as the theme song to An Officer and a Gentleman. Her new album, her first in nearly ten years, is called The Well.
