Among her over 30 albums, she has recorded a children's record (There's a Hippo in My Tub), a duet album with American country star Glen Campbell and several albums of Christmas songs; her collection of 1950s torch songs, Croonin' (1993), was her 29th studio recording and took her total album sales past 24 million units worldwide. A 3-disc box set anthology, Now & Forever, was released in 1995. Murray made a high-profile comeback in 1996. She hosted the 25th annual JUNO Awards in March, signed with Bryan ADAMS' management company, and released a critically acclaimed self-titled album in August 1996 that featured a contemporary R&B-flavoured sound along with guests Jann Arden and Aaron Neville. She has received many Juno Awards, several Grammy Awards, and was made Companion of the Order of Canada in 1985 and inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1993.
