Sunday Morning with Petula Clark

I know I just did a post on Petula Clark recently, But I had found these two videos that I was dying to use, and thought this would be a great way to do it. They are just beautiful, and need to be heard. The first is from her role in the film Finian's Rainbow. She sings a version of How Are Things in Glocca Morra? that is meant to break down even the coldest of hearts.

In the 70s, she appeared on British television to sing Cole Porter's Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye, and does a fantastic job with it.

Clark also appeared on the stage quite often, taking the lead rol in many shows, including Sunset Boulevard and The Sound Of Music. She was magnificent as Maria, and the 'real' Maria Von Trapp said she was "the best Maria ever!" Here she is singing the beautiful Edelweiss.

For more about Petulat, check out her official website here. You can find one of the many Greatest Hits collections, which I am sure you will love, on here, and on iTunes here.
