Blossoms will run away -
Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Julie Wilson


Here is a famous song by the classy Julie Wilson.
Julie Wilson (born in 1924) is an American singer and actress. Born in Omaha, Nebraska, Wilson headed to New York City during World War II and found work in two of Manhattan's leading nightclubs, the Latin Quarter and the Copacabana. She made her Broadway debut in the 1946 revue "Three to Make Ready". In 1951, she moved to London to star in the West End production of "Kiss Me, Kate" and remained there for four years, appearing in shows such as "South Pacific" and "Bells Are Ringing" while studying at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. She returned to New York to replace Joan Diener in "Kismet". Additional Broadway credits include "The Pajama Game" (1954), "Jimmy" (1969), "Park" (1970), and "Legs Diamond" (1988), for which she received a Tony Award nomination as Best Featured Actress in a Musical. She also toured in "Show Boat", "Panama Hattie", "Silk Stockings", "Follies", "Company", and "A Little Night Music". Wilson's television credits include regular roles on the Australian series "The Young Doctors" and the American daytime soap opera "The Secret Storm". She also appeared in a Hallmark Hall of Fame telecast of "Kiss Me, Kate" and numerous episodes of The Ed Sullivan Show. In 1983, she found her niche and forged her reputation as a cabaret performer, known primarily for her dramatic delivery of torch songs and show tunes. Her recordings include My Old Flame, Live From the Russian Tea Room, Julie Wilson At the St. Regis, and collections devoted to the songbooks of Cole Porter, Kurt Weill, Harold Arlen, Cy Coleman, Stephen Sondheim, and George and Ira Gershwin.
Enjoy Julie's style!
