In my opinion, there is no better song than Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg's, "Over the Rainbow."
I knew the perfect time for me to sing my favorite song live for the first time was for the very special show I put together for my Grandfather at his retirement home.
(My Grandfather's sitting in the front row on the right, second from the center.)
The fabulous Houston, Texas pianist, Dehner Franks, played a gorgeous Steinway piano that one of the residents owns and lends for performances. Even though the very small speakers that you can see in each corner had a little trouble with the more powerful parts of the song, I still think the performance shines through and I'm proud to share it with you.
Remember, if you are ever feeling low, or think you can't go on, sing this song. It's always there for you.
After the show, my Grandfather and I taped the interview video below in ONE TAKE! We had never done a video together before, but we made a great team!
And below is my Grandpa's first selfie this Thanksgiving from my instagram profile.
