1967 - Frank Sinatra

Nancy Sinatra and Frank Sinatra started a four week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with 'Somethin' Stupid'. They became the only father and daughter act ever to score a No.1 single. UB40 singer Ali Cambell covered the song in 1995 with his daughter Kibbi. Robbie Williams had a 2001 UK No.1 with his version of the song featuring Nicole Kidman.

I really like this cover done by Secret Sisters https://youtu.be/XndE2nwNy8s

Born Brooklyn, New York
In 1916 Jacob Gershvin, born of Russian Jewish immigrants, published, on Sophie Tucker’s recommendation,"When You Want ’Em, You Can’t Get ’Em—When You’ve Got ’Em, You Don’t Want ’Em," earning him five dollars. From such inauspicious beginnings came George Gershwin, one of the great American composers of the twentieth century. Initially drawn to stage musicals, Gershwin had several Broadway hits in the 1920s, most notably Lady Be Good with his brother Ira. His style evolved from hits like "Swanee" to sophisticated ballads like "Someone to Watch Over Me" and "The Man I Love." Gershwin experimented with placing jazz in a symphonic form with Rhapsody in Blue, opening to mixed reviews but thrilling audiences since its debut in 1924. His 1928 An American in Paris remains a classic. Porgy and Bess (1935), "an American folk opera," broke new ground in musical and social terms. Gershwin’s music remains immensely popular, a major fixture of the American songbook.

Oh. Hey.
I have been nominated to be recognized as a teacher this year in the People's Choice category. This was a surprise as I read it in my feed just now on Facebook.

It's been a hard year.
For all of us.
I have considered myself lucky to be in the position I have been this past year. Students and their families have been supportive of moving to video call lessons and I hope that I have given the support and care that they have shown me back plus some.

I am excited to be in the planning stages to offer in-person instruction once again.

To my fellow teachers, you have done amazing work as always but especially during this past pandemic year. Congrats. Keep it up and remember, we're not teaching only music.

We teach...
Expression
Healthy Coping
Math
Science
Critical Thinking
Problem Solving
Perseverance

The list can and should go on because...
We all have and can make music.

And to the people whose choice it was to recognize me...
Thank you.

I do what I do out of love for music and for my community.

1980 - R.E.M.
R.E.M. played their first ever gig when they appeared at St Mary's Episcopal Church, Athens, Georgia. The show at this abandoned church was for a friend's birthday party.

1967 - Jimi Hendrix
Jimi Hendrix set fire to his guitar live on stage for the first time when he was appearing at The Astoria in London, England. It was the first night of a 24-date tour with The Walker Brothers, Cat Stevens and Engelbert Humperdink. The Fender Stratocaster burned on stage by Hendrix sold for £280,000 at a 2008 London auction of rock memorabilia.
