Born in Brooklyn, Nanette Workman, was raised in Mississippi. She got her start on Broadway at 18 years old, and went on to work, successively, as a model, back-up singer, actress and singer. At the invitation of Tony Roman, she came to Quebec in the 1960s. In the 1970s she went to Europe where she worked with The Rolling Stones and Johnny Hallyday. After she returned to Quebec, her recording of Lady Marmelade was a hit, and she played Sadia in Starmania. In the 1980s, she recorded Call Girl, by Luc Plamondon, which climbed to the top of the charts. After performing in two musical comedies (1926 and La Légende de Jimmy), Workman was awarded the 1994 Félix for Rock Album of the Year for Rock et romance. During the 2000s, she released a series of blues albums.
