Jamie Bernstein follows in father's footsteps

NEW YORK (AP) -- The daughter of the late Leonard Bernstein is taking after her father.

On Saturday, Jamie Bernstein will lead 250 young people in her new composition, "NYC Shout-Out," which she calls "an urban street chant."

The free concert at St. Paul the Apostle Church in Manhattan is part of a one-day festival featuring the Young People's Chorus of New York City. Many of its members, ages 12 to 18, have had no formal musical training.

Jamie Bernstein is a singer, composer and radio personality, who along with her two siblings, has continued to keep alive the legacy of their father, who died in 1990.
