I wrote about this in my Playbill column today. Renee was so nervous about learning the lyrics to this song that she was going to call the producers and say she had been in a car accident!!!! She then (thankfully) found out that there was a tele-prompter. Listen to her sassy riff on the word “by” the last time she does “…and a person should celebrate everything…passing by-y-y-y”
This is the amazing Lillias White singing “Brotherhood of Man” vs. the original version. She’s gonna be the guest on my Studio A cabaret all this weekend (if you don’t have Sirius radio, get three days free at Sirius.com), AND she’s performing Monday’s at The Triad on 72nd street all this month (at 9:30). Listen to Ted Sperling’s amazing arrangement and Lillias’ tone, vibrato, riffs, phrasing and BRILLIANCE!
