Even More Wonderful
Okay, so yesterday I had that all-star chorus singing "What a Wonderful World." I thought that today I should post the original.
One of the entertainment treats of my life is that I got to see Louis Armstrong in concert. Better still, it was just three years before, the summer of 1964 when he had his massive hit with the song, "Hello, Dolly!" I was a kidling, but had the good sense to not only want to go to the concert at the Ravinia Music Festival, outside Chicago in Highland Park, but was anxiously looking forward it.
The most memorable thing about the show is that when he sang "Hello, Dolly!" the crowd went so crazy that the had to sing five encores of it! Really. He didn't sing it all the way through six times, but he did twice and I believe he did three times. But the crowd was cheering so much that they wouldn't let him move on. The last three times were just one time through the song. But still...
Anyway, three years later he had another enduring hit with this.
