Harold Jacob Rome (May 27, 1908, Hartford, Connecticut -- October 26, 1993, New York City, NY) was an American composer, lyricist, and writer for musical theater. Born in Hartford, Connecticut, Rome played piano in local dance bands and was already writing music while studying architecture and law at Yale University. After graduation he worked as an architect in New York City, but continued to pursue his musical interests, arranging music for local bands and writing material for revues at Green Mansions, a Jewish summer resort in the Adirondacks. Much of the music Rome was writing at this time was socially conscious and of little interest to Tin Pan Alley. In 1937, he made his Broadway debut as co-writer, composer, and lyricist of the topical revue Pins and Needles. Pins and Needles was originally written for a small theatrical production directed by Samuel Roland. After a 2 week professional run, it was adapted for performances by members of the then-striking International Garment Workers' Union as an entertainment for its members. Because Roland was associated with left-wing causes, he was asked by ILGWU president David Dubinsky to withdraw. The show was a huge success, running for 1108 performances, and prompted George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart to invite Rome to collaborate on another topical revue, Sing Out the News, in 1938. In the early 1940s, Rome wrote songs for several revues and shows, but it was not until after the end of World War II that he had his first major ...

Lena Calhoun Horne (1917 - 2010) Actress / Singer, 1940s through present-day Lena Horne was born Lena Calhoun Horne on June 30, 1917, in Brooklyn. Her mother, Edna, had an extremely fair complexion, and the hospital staff thought she was Caucasian. Her father, Teddy, wasn't there at her birth -- he was out gambling to win enough money to pay the hospital bill. Her mother pushed Lena into showbiz -- Edna got her hired at age 16 as a chorus girl at Harlem's Cotton Club. Lena had to quit school and become the family breadwinner with a salary of just $25 weekly. She married Lewis Jones young and by age 20 already had a daughter. Soon after she gave birth to a son, Teddy, who died of kidney failure in 1971. In 1938, Lena was given one of the leads (Ethel) in The Duke is Tops at the suggestion of an agent who had seen her at the Cotton Club. She moved to Hollywood after her divorce from Lewis and was soon discovered by MGM. Lena stipulated in her contract that she would not get sterotypical black roles. In fact, MGM wanted her to look even darker on screen, so Max Factor invented "Little Egyptian" makeup for Lena to serve that purpose. Lena's first MGM role was as an uncredited nightclub singer in the 1942 Ann Sothern musical Panama Hattie. Some people believe Lena's segment to be the only bright spot in the picture. This appearence went over well, and so MGM gave her a spot in a big all-star revue, Thousands Cheer. There she sang one of her most famous movie numbers ...

Ms. Horne was stuffed into one all-star musical after another — Thousands Cheer (1943), Broadway Rhythm (1944), Two Girls and a Sailor (1944), Ziegfeld Follies (1946), Words and Music (1948) — to sing a song or two that could easily be snipped from the movie when it played in the South, where the idea of an African-American performer in anything but a subservient role in a movie with an otherwise all-white cast was unthinkable.

The Best of Gene Kelly Part 1, The whole mix is longer. Eugene Curran "Gene" Kelly (August 23, 1912 February 2, 1996) was an American dancer, actor, singer, film director and producer, and choreographer. A major exponent of 20th century filmed dance, Kelly was known for his energetic and athletic dancing style, his good looks and the like-able characters that he played on screen. Although he is known today for his performance in Singin' in the Rain, he was a dominant force in Hollywood musical films from the mid 1940s until the demise of this form in the late 1950s. His many innovations transformed the Hollywood musical film, and he is credited with almost single-handedly making the ballet form commercially acceptable to film audiences. Kelly was the recipient of an Academy Honorary Award in 1952 for his career achievements. He later received lifetime achievement awards in the Kennedy Center Honors, and from the Screen Actors Guild and American Film Institute; in 1999, the American Film Institute also numbered him 15th in their Greatest Male Stars of All Time list. Kelly died in his sleep at 8.15 am on February 2, 1996, in Beverly Hills, California at the age of 83, after a stroke he had also suffered a stroke the year before. His body was cremated the same day and he had left instructions that there was to be no funeral and no memorial services. Kelly's papers are currently housed at the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University.

Happy Easter everyone. Easter Parade played on the Yamaha PSR-S900 Easter Parade is a popular song that was written by Irving Berlin and was published in 1933. The lyrics describe the singer's involvement in an American cultural event called the Easter parade. The song was introduced by Marilyn Miller and Clifton Webb in the Broadway musical revue As Thousands Cheer (1933), in which musical numbers were strung together on the thematic thread of newspaper headlines. It was repeated in Holiday Inn (1942), which featured an Irving Berlin song about each major holiday. In 1948, it was featured in the musical film of the same title, which was constructed around it. The song was also featured in the Rankin/Bass special The First Easter Rabbit in 1976 and has since become a standard. Berlin originally wrote the melody in 1916, under the title Smile and Show Your Dimple. The song flopped but the composer filed away the melody for later use. The song is often considered to be one of the most popular Easter songs of all time, along with Peter Cottontail.
★ Kathryn Grayson A Tribute ★ 6. vinyl Kathryn Grayson A Tribute (1922-2010) Johann Strauss Voices of Spring an operbathosa video Part 1 The Guardian UK Kathryn Grayson obituarySinger and Hollywood star best known for her roles in MGM musicals of the 1940s and 50s Buzz up! Digg it Ronald Bergen guardian.co.uk, Friday 19 February 2010 18.04 GMT Article history When coloratura soprano Kathryn Grayson, who has died aged 88, sang five songs, including an aria from La Traviata, in MGM's all-star patriotic parade, Thousands Cheer (1943), she began her 10-year reign as the prima donna of Hollywood. With her china-doll features, little turned-up nose and patrician manner, Grayson raised the tone of more than a dozen musicals. Although opera managers did not beat a path to her door, her clear, slightly shrill, small voice carried well on film in popular classics and operatic scenes. Her classical training led her not to the opera house, but to the radio, in particular The Eddie Cantor Show, on which she was discovered by an MGM talent scout at the age of 18 in 1940. In the same year, she married the minor film actor John Shelton. In her first film, Grayson, who was born Zelma Hedrick in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, played the title role opposite Mickey Rooney in Andy Hardy's Private Secretary (1941), in which she sang Johann Strauss's Voices of Spring prettily. The following year, loaned out to RKO, she chirped a few songs in Rio Rita, a vehicle for Abbott and Costello. At MGM ...

OBITUARYFebruary 19, 2010|By Dennis McLellan Kathryn Grayson, an MGM singing star in the 1940s and early '50s in musicals such as "Anchors Aweigh," "Kiss Me Kate" and "Show Boat," has died. She was 88. Grayson died Wednesday of natural causes at her home in Los Angeles, said publicist Dale Olson. A dark-haired beauty with a heart-shaped face and a brilliant coloratura voice, Grayson signed with MGM as a teenager and made her screen debut in "Andy Hardy's Private Secretary," starring Mickey Rooney, in 1941. She went on to appear opposite Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly in "Anchors Aweigh," Kelly in "Thousands Cheer," Sinatra in "The Kissing Bandit," Mario Lanza in "The Toast of New Orleans," Howard Keel in "Show Boat," "Lovely to Look At" and "Kiss Me Kate," and Gordon MacRae in "The Desert Song," among other musicals. "Kathryn Grayson was an attempt to continue the Jeanette MacDonald tradition at MGM," said Drew Casper, a professor at USC's School of Cinematic Arts, referring to half of the studio's popular operetta team of Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy who came to fame in the 1930s. "In all her films, Grayson was ...

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Its as close to a white Christmas as Florida can get. Thousands of white plastic bags filled with food and gifts blanketed the grass of a city park in Jacksonville, Florida this month, creating a visual winter wonderland of blessing. For the last 10 years, this one-day community event has been helping struggling families with food and gifts for the Christmas holidays, thanks to Operation Blessings partnership with NFL team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, Winn Dixie and Wachovia. Its such a positive way to have an impact on the most needy in our community, said Holly Cleveland, director of community affairs at Wachovia. This is the single largest event that I manage throughout the year and to see the amount of the work that gets done in a 5-hour period is absolutely incredible and everyone has a great time doing it. More than 250 volunteers came out to help with the event, including former alumni players with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The community is part of us so were extremely fortunate to have an opportunity to come out and participate in an event like this, said Bryan Barker, a punter with the Jaguars from 2000-2005. But the real blessings of the event were felt by the recipients. More than 3000 families received bags of canned goods, drinks, produce and more, as well as gift bags for children containing books, dolls and special toys. For Tamara, this event was the only way she would be able to have a Christmas for her two young sons. Its been a hard ...

This entirely volunteer Christmas gift-giving program, sponsored and coordinated by Child & Family Services, Inc. State Office, began in 1971 by individuals who wanted to make a difference in the lives of children who reside in foster care. Recipients include infants, children, teenagers, and adults with disabilities.Over 4000 children and youth are provided with gifts each year to open on Christmas morning and since 1971 more than 65000 participants have had their Christmas wishes come true as a result of Operation Good Cheer volunteer efforts. Thousands of generous volunteers gather annually to participate in Operation Good Cheer. Donor groups and individuals purchase and wrap Christmas gifts from a child's "Wish List". At donor sites, these gifts are picked up and transported by volunteer trucking companies and their drivers to a centrally located airport. Pilots and drivers with their aircraft and vehicles transport the gifts to local airports across Michigan. At each airport, agency volunteers gather the the gifts and deliver them to the children and youth in foster care. This impressive display of generosity provides thousands of youth, some of whom would not receive anything otherwise, with gifts and the joy of knowing there are people who care.

On November 14 & 21, 2009, hundreds of Rhode Islanders participated in Operation Holiday Cheer, coordinated by the Lt. Governor's Office and collected thousands of donations, including from many RI businesses, and put together 500 boxes of "holiday cheer" -- snacks, books, socks, knit hats, candy, magazines, toiletries, and messages of care and love from children in schools throughout the state -- for RI's 500 National Guard deployed in Afghanistan, Iraq and other stations overseas. The spirit of generosity and mindfulness is alive and well. We miss our women and men in active service.

You probably could not find two more disparate females than Ella Fitzgerald and Marilyn Monroe, and yet they MET (see video), and in a small way, Marilyn even helped Ella get a gig she couldn't get before, at the famous Mocambo in Los Angeles (Marilyn was a huge fan of Ella's and promised The Mocambo she would sit in the front row every night if they booked Ella for a week...and they did just that in 1955). Ella became the first black performer at The Mocambo, and this incident even prompted Bonnie Geer, a London-based American playwright, to recently write a play about the two entitled "Marilyn and Ella". The song "Heat Wave" was composed by Irving Berlin in 1933 originally for the Broadway musical "As Thousands Cheer" starring Ethel Merman. In 1954, the song was reprised in the motion picture "There's No Business Like Show Business" also starring Ethel Merman along with Marilyn Monroe who famously sang this Berlin tune in the film. Ella subsequently recorded it for Verve, and I wonder if Marilyn was on her mind when she sang it.

Ethel Waters (oct.31,1896 - sep.1,1977) was an American blues and jazz vocalist and actress. She was born to a 12 year old mother, Louise Anderson, who had been raped by a white man, John Waters. Although she was raised by her maternal grandmother, she took her father's surname. Reared in poverty, she left school at the age of 13 in order to support herself through domestic housework. Waters performed for the first time at the age of five in a children's church program. She was called Baby Star and later, performing on the black vaudeville circuit, became known as Sweet Mama Stringbean. After moving to New York City in 1919, at the start of the Harlem Renaissance, Waters recorded songs for Black Swan Records and then Colombia Records while playing in revues and performing on the white vaudeville circuit during the 1920s. Two of her more popular songs were "Dinah" (1925) and "Stormy Weather" (1933). By refining the lyrics and the performance, Waters introduced urban blues to a white audience. Her stylistic alterations created a niche for the black nightclub singers who gained popularity from the 1930s through the 1950s. In 1927, Waters career as an actress began with the musical Africana. She played singing roles in other Broadway productions: Blackbirds (1930), Rhapsody in Black (1931), As Thousands Cheer (1933), At Home Abroad (1936, and Cabin in the Sky (1940). Waters played more dramatic roles in Mamba's Daughters (1939) and The Member of the Wedding (1950). Appearing ...
