Molly Ringwald: Jazz 'Reminds Me Of Home' (VIDEO)

Molly Ringwald has proven she's more than an '80 teen queen. On an episode of “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” airing Sunday, cameras caught up with Ringwald at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, where she performed songs from her new jazz quartet album, "Except Sometimes."

In the video clip, Ringwald comes full circle from "The Breakfast Club" by singing a jazz rendition of the movie’s theme song, "Don’t You (Forget About Me)" by Simple Minds.

Ringwald says her roots in jazz run deep. "I've always been drawn to jazz because it reminds me of home," she says in the video. "I find it very comforting."

Before she was ever in front of a camera as an actor, Ringwald was on stage as a singer. "I did start singing with my father's jazz band when I was about 3," she says. "I think that was the first time I was in front of an audience, was 3-and-a-half, with my dad's band."

"Oprah: Where Are They Now?" airs Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on OWN.
