La Baker

I saw this video of the beautiful and legendary
Josephine Baker and knew I had to share this.
Here is some glam for all of you on a Monday.
This is from her movie Zou Zou (1934).
Now, I want to get more of her music.
She had a beautiful voice! Enjoy

I also adore your new pic-meant to comment on it the other day. I feel like I can really see who you are in it. A lovely, warm sweet soul searching sister.
Love and a warm hug to you.

What timing! I'm in the process of reading her (seemingly never ending) biography, "Josephine" right now! She was quite the character. Surprisingly, for a woman who is sooooo famous, very few really know what her voice was like. I remembered hearing it years ago, and recalled the tight vibrato - but I couldn't really remember what it sounded like. Thanks for the reminder! She was fab!
