McCann has developed meaningful collaborations with bassist John Clayton, saxophonist Branford Marsalis, vibraphonist Joe Locke, saxophonist Charles McPherson, vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater, vocalist and songwriter Carmen Lundy, and conductor and trumpeter Orbert Davis. As an educator, she believes singing is a part of every human community; bringing us together and helping us to interact with one another. In addition to individual lessons, McCann has also curated workshops and educational events for DuSable Museum, the Jazz Educators Network Conference, the Jazz Institute of Chicago's Straight Ahead Jazz Camp, all culminating in her being named Executive Director of the Brownville Jazz Retreat, an emerging jazz camp for youth in collaboration with historic Brownville, Nebraska.
