  2. Thank you Pieter. Great article and video. To think that I was living in New York at the time and never saw anything in regards to her performing at the Minskoff Theater or Carnegie Hall. I was younger then, working, and had other things on my mind at the time. This video makes you feel as if you are right there. Glad you got to see her Julie.

  3. Wow, I agree with you Judie and Claudia, you never get over seeing her performances. Still I can remember my first Carnegie concert of her in September 1980 and many of the songs she performed like “Feelings”, and “This is my life”. I was young and working in Manhattan myself and do recall seeing this “Playbill” about her on Broadway- WEEKS AFTER THE SHOW. I was disappointed that there was no huge advertisement about such a grand event on Broadway. Even a well known black station known as “WBLS” would occasionally play a song of her and even advertised a concert some years later. Claudia I REALLY HOPE some how you get a chance to see a live performance one day. But atleast we have this medium of the world wide web that can show a lot her great performances of yesterday and today.

    1. Thank you so much Emmit. 1980 I was on my way to San Antonio Texas, so for eight years I missed out on any concerts she performed here. So glad you and Julie got to see her. .Maybe I’ll mail a short letter to her residence in Monaco asking her if she can return, if not this year, next year. Maybe she can perform at Lincoln Center, or once again at Carnegie Hall, LOL!!! I can dream, and say a prayer.
