April 16th: Happy Birthday Henry Mancini! 🎁
Pink Panther, Theme from Peter Gunn, Baby Elephant Walk - chances are you've heard lots of Henry Mancini's music and just not been aware. Mancini was super prolific during the 60s and 70s and left us great music to enjoy and sing! Here are my top five suggestions for every singer: *click on the song title for sheet music links*
Moon River (Breakfast At Tiffany's) Every singer should know and sing this song. Period.
Le Jazz Hot (Victor/Victoria) A sassy, FUN song to sing!
Soldier In The Rain I stumbled upon this one by accident and fell in love instantly. It's PERFECT for Remembrance Day events.
Charade (Charade) So understated, so sexy!
You and Me (Victor/Victoria) This song has classic vaudeville charm! It works as a solo, but is adorable as a duet.
