Wayne Brady became a household name by improvising on the popular TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway? The singer, actor, dancer and comedian has also appeared in the stage productions Rent and Chicago, and he became host of the game show Let's Make a Deal in 2009.

On Song Travels, Brady discusses his two major musical influences: Sammy Davis Jr. and Sam Cooke. With his musical director Cat Gray at the piano, Brady performs the Cooke classic "You Send Me," and host Michael Feinstein joins Brady in a duet of "It's Only a Paper Moon."
