All Hail Queen Gracie
Listening to the voice of Chris Cuomo as I work.
More bad news, I'm afraid. Bonnie Pointer from the Pointer Sisters has died.
Bonnie's death means that the original line-up of the group, made up of the two younger sisters, have now left for the big stage in the sky. Youngest sister June died in 2006. Older sisters Anita and Ruth would later join the group to make it a trio and then a quartet.
Bonnie left the group in 1977, before the Pointer Sisters released the songs I am most familiar with ("Jump" and "I'm So Excited"). However, she was a co-writer of the following song with Anita (who sings the lead vocals), which won the group their first Grammy Award:
The Pointer Sisters - "Fairytale"
My thoughts are with her family, friends, and fans.
Stravinsky's "Firebird" by the Philadelphia Orchestra
^ Your whole post reminds me of a Disney DVD - "The Three Musketeers" in which classical music is used (Bizet, Tchaikovsky, etc.) & Mickey, Donald, Goofy, & Minnie sing different lyrics to them to suit the story!
