For the longest while, the only video that was available online of the very moving memorial for Jim Henson was when the group of Muppet performers one-by-one sang a heartbreakingly beautiful version of the song, "Just One Person," which I posed here.
A few more videos of the memorial have now made their way into the world, and this is one of the best of them. It's Caroll Spinney as Big Bird performing an absolutely spellbinding rendition of Kermit's iconic song, "Being Green." Just his entrance alone is beautiful by itself without a note even being sung.
The most remarkable thing about the performance is how Caroll Spinney made it through without breaking into tears. And it seems like he came close a few times.
Note the color of the neck ribbon that the big yellow bird is wearing...
