Sarah Spiegel is an American singer and actress.

Life[edit]

Sarah was born in Long Branch, N.J., and her early years were spent in Belmar, N.J. She acquired a love for the "Big Band" sound very early in life and decided that it would be her calling. Moving to Jupiter, Florida after graduating from Belmar Elementary School, she continued her education focused on both music and acting. Spiegel was in the first graduating class of the Palm Beach County School of the Arts at the Kravis Center, and Burt Reynolds was the keynote speaker to mark the prestigious occasion. She subsequently graduated from The New World School of the Arts in Miami, and has also received a “Bachelor of Fine Arts” diploma from the University of Florida.[citation needed]

Spiegel earned a reputation as "The Regal Miss Sarah Spiegel", or simply "The Regal Miz". Her 1930s and '40s songs can be heard daily on the popular radio station, WJTW 100.3 FM in Palm Beach County, right alongside Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Barbra Streisand.[citation needed]

Spiegel has performed on national television shows such as Samantha Who?, The King of Queens, Boston Public, Navy NCIS, Living With Fran, and Providence.[citation needed]

She has starred in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Dancing at Lughnasa, The Caucasian Chalk Circle and The Threepenny Opera.[citation needed]

General Motors recruited Sarah to be one of the national spokespersons for their 100th anniversary celebration. She interviewed and shared the stage with many luminaries from the business and entertainment field throughout 2008.[citation needed]

Spiegel has performed the Star Spangled Banner in front of 70,000 NFL fans twice (St. Louis Rams vs. Buffalo Bills and St. Louis Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals).[citation needed]

She also devotes much of her time to writing original lyrics and short stories and has recently written a one woman show which will debut on a Los Angeles stage, featuring established and original songs. The show, "Through the Perilous Fight (We Never Stopped Singing)" is a tribute to the beautiful and heroic music of World War II.[citation needed]
