Cyndi Lauper is the subject of a forthcoming career-retrospective documentary titled Let the Canary Sing. It’s directed by Alison Ellwood, who also oversaw the 2019 Go-Go’s documentary and a two-part documentary about the Laurel Canyon scene for Epix in 2020. The project does not yet have a release date, but is in production via Sony Music Entertainment’s Premium Content Division.
According to a press release, Let the Canary Sing will cover the pop star’s ascent from her Queens upbringing to the top of the pop charts in the 1980s and beyond. Ellwood shared a statement about the project:
Along with her music career, Lauper has been an active advocate for LGBTQIA+ inclusive causes. The United Nations Human Rights Council and the High Note Global Initiative honored her for her work with the High Note Global Prize Laureate award in 2019.
