Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man

I was very excited to sing this song for two reasons. One – it’s my favorite song from the musical “Showboat” (music by Jerome Kern and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II). Two – I got to wear this fabulous dress which was recreated by Martaine. It was a dream come true to both wear this dress and record this song. I hope you enjoy!!

Baked Candied Yams

This is a home recipe from the cookbook of Ava Gardner. Although I cook my own version of candied yams, I was eager and excited to try out a new recipe (paprika in candied yams?? What!!) and was very pleased with the results. I found the recipe on the @AvaGardnerOfficial Instagram page. Check out more fun recipes from them, and of course, lots more photo content and images of the fabulous and glamorous, Ava Gardner!!
Thanks for watching!!

Happy December!! Speak Low

To begin my Ava December project, I’ll start with the song “Speak Low” from the Kurt Weill/Odgen Nash musical, “One Touch of Venus.” This song was featured in the 1948 film version, and even though it wasn’t Ava that actually sang in the film, (her voice was dubbed by Eileen Wilson) I enjoyed her performance and loved the song. The lyrics are a play on words from a line from William Shakespeare’s play “Much Ado About Nothing,” in which Don Pedro says “Speak low if you speak love.”
Enjoy!!

Happy January 2020!! ‍- New Music Video 🧜🧜

Good evening, Folks!! 2020 is shaping up to be pretty spectacular so far!! I am shooting a SECOND music video from my debut album “Siren’s Song” tomorrow, and I am so excited and proud of the work done on the video thus far!! 
‍🧜 “Siren’s Song” 🧜 came out 8 months ago today, and if you haven’t heard it or purchased it yet, please do so!! 
The video I’m filming tomorrow is for my song “When Will We Learn” which is a song I wrote with a heavy heart about coping with the aftermath of gun violence. It’s a beautiful song, and the video will reflect how this affects us all.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful new year and being productive, finding success, and happiness; and learning, loving, and living as much as possible. Happy January!!
💙🖤💙🖤
