Showcase for Crystal R. Fox's singing voice
13 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the TV series "Heat of the Night," the character of Luann Corbin was always convincingly well-played by actress Crystal R. Fox, but the episodes that featured her excellent singing voice were the highlights of her appearances; in particular, the episode "Singin' the Blues" (1993). In this seventh-season episode, not only does Ms. Fox sing beautifully in her church, but she sings blues exceptionally well in a newly opened night club in fictional Sparta, Mississippi. Otherwise, this episode was somewhat formulaic, but as always, was redeemed by its charismatic and talented actors Carroll O'Connor, David Hart, and of course, Crystal R. Fox.
