There is something quite heady about being on stage in a glitzy floor length gown, singing with world-class operatic superstars. “Richard and Friends” from all angles was hugely successful, and it was wonderful to be able to just kibbitz with Richard, Val, and Lauren once again. Lauren is a miniature Richard all over- except female of course. She is fast following in her father’s footsteps, having signed on to the Decca Label, and will be recording jazz remakes of some old Sinatra tunes (to start). This is a world that I can not even begin to comprehend. I love to sing, but I don’t think I would want to make a living by it.
