Doris Day turned 90 yesterday. I revisited a story I wrote about here two years ago on her 88th. At 90, it is worth a revisit.
Moon here. I just adore Doris Day. She is 88 years old today and has had a terrific life. Sure, she's had her share of tragedies, but has persevered and advocated for many a helpless animal. Still active, too, with a new CD and DVD available at her website. Early in life she wanted to be a dancer. When a car accident injured her legs so much she had no chance to dance professionally she found she had another talent -- singing. Recuperating from the injuries and listening to the radio, she sang along with Ella Fitzgerald and found she could emulate the phrasing and rhythm. I think Doris Day has one of the best voices ever. This You Tube tribute not only shows her singing ability but also her beauty over the years.
