I thought I would share two different video’s from youtube. Both of these, I have shared previously on another page, but thought I would repost them here. They are being shared for different reasons.
The first one is simply a truly haunting song with a great voice and an intriguing sound. The second shared if so a more personal reason having to do with memories of long ago and far away, during my one trip to New York City and a personal hero. Well, not just a hero for me personally, for many people actually, but not for the general public, necessarily.
Now, while you are still here, here is another song. The voice is not so stellar, but that is part of the comedy that this person excels in. This second song is by Harvey Fierstein. He is a well known gay actor (well in New York not Hollywood) who starred in the original cast of my absolutely favorite play, Torch Song Trilogy.
It was the only show I ever saw in New York, and I saw it in an intimate little theater off broadway. No, none of this has directly to do with the song, but it is an explanation of why anything he does excites my attention.
What I have not, until now, shared here is that I used to do drag. Haven’t done any in a while, but when I posted this a few years ago on another website, someone asked if this was me performing. I was honored to say the least.
