The Divine Sarah is back at the BBC Proms, Sept 3rd 2011, at the Royal Albert Hall. She is the only one of the solo singers who was in the first concert in 2009. From the Deanna Durbin film.
Makes you realise just how fabulous Deanna Durbin was.
I just love Sarah Fox music
I never expected to ever hear this gorgeous song performed again all these years after Deanna Durbin's wonderful rendition in the 1945 film, "Can't Help Singing." Her only colour film, Deanna Durbin was spectacular in it, though she and her lovely voice are so sadly forgotten today, after her retirement from films in 1948. Sarah Fox radiates pure joy, bringing back to life this once-forgotten gem. Deanna Durbin was still alive at 89 years young when this performance was given. Hopefully, was able to see this before her passing in 2013. Many thanks for sharing this brilliant piece.
She is out of rhythm because she's overdoing it. And she has almost half the words wrong. It's called light music because you're supposed to do it lightly.
Sarah Fox did not disappoint. Her version was just as good as Deanna Durbin's in 1944. And she is a beautiful woman to behold. I like the video.
Sarah is my friends antiue + please believe me because its true
Notice that John Wilson and his Orchestra did not vary the orchestration of this song. It is essentially the same orchestration used by the Universal Studio Orchestra from the 1944 film of the same name.
She is the only singer who could be said to rival Lesley Garrett.
Such control and power and it all looks so natural! Beautiful, she is.
She's da bomb and from what I hear and read, a sweetie too. No diva - yet! :)
She is truly amazing. I actually once played Mahler 4 with Sarah as the soloist and she was amazing then. I was told she would be world class and it is so true!
When I thougth that I've seen all already..... wow! But now I don't wanna listen great voices anymore cause' my pc is full of them. What am I gonna do????
I saw her singing the Messiah soprano solos today. Honestly the best singer I've ever seen live.
Sarah is stunning - Sheer class
I just love this; my dad was a big fan of Deanna Durbin who originally sang it, but I'm sure he'd have loved this version. There is so much music and joy in her voice.
I first heard 'Can't Help Singing' performed live many years ago at a BBC Sunday evening broadcast at Aeolion Hall in Bond Street, it was performed superbly by Vanessa Lee (Leigh)......Sarah Fox more than does the song justice, a wonderful performance by a very stunningly attractive lady.
Divine indeed, many thanks for upload.
