While reading on the J train last evening, I heard the deep baritone voice of a man singing “Easter Parade”.
“In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it
You’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade”
I quickly scanned the commuters to identify the song artist. I spotted a man, side-stepping across the cars, older and taller and blinder Jamie Fox. His eyes were closed as he sang with passion. I thoroughly enjoyed his set list. [See Below]
1. Easter Parade
2. Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer
3. Take Me Out to the Ballgame
4. Zippity Doo Da
6. Saturday Night At the Movies
Those were literally the 6 songs I heard him sing. I thought the random, yet familiar selection was awesome.
These days, you can’t pay to see a concert with that kind of entertainment.
