Marilyn Maye

You’ve probably never heard of this lady. I hadn’t.  She did a cabernet show that was amazing – especially since she is 80 YEARS OLD. I mean she sings, dances and can kick hear feet up to her head.
 
What a history.
 
Nobody had more guest appearances than her on Johnny Carson – 76.
 
Ella Fitzgerald dubbed her “The greatest white female singer in the world.”
 
She was the first singer and recorder of the original Cabaret in the early 60s on RCA, well before it opened on Broadway.
 
This woman can perform. I hope that she just does it because it is fun for her.
