This morning I woke up thinking about Showboat. I was still in elementary school when my grandparents took me to see the stage play. Marilyn McCoo played Julie, and to say I was in total awe of her, would be putting it mildly. I think I wanted to be her, I ran around my house singing “Can’t Help Lovin That Man Of Mine” and carrying around the theater program for weeks.
I ran into this video of her and her husband Billy Davis Jr. presenting at 76′ Grammys. Damn this is when music still existed
