So WONDERFUL to be on another JOURNEY with ALL of you.
I have bought a NEW pair of dancing shoes and ready to SING and DANCE and ENTERTAIN ALL of YOU.
The song I have chosen for the 1st Round is ALL THAT JAZZ.
I LOVE to sing and also LOVE to dance and this song makes me want to COME ALIVE do both and be a little NAUGHTY. I have never been on stage and if I had the chance I would LOVE to be in a MUSICAL like CHICAGO.
I was in my teens when this song came out and I would be in my bedroom and act out the part of a chorus girl with my scarfs, headbands , mums beads and even pretend to have a cigarette holder with a cigarette in it ( it was a ruler from my school bag) had FUN though and as I sing this song it brings back WONDERFUL memories again.
I HOPE you will enjoy my rendition of ALL THAT JAZZ.

"All That Jazz" is the opening number from the musical Chicago; the phrase had of course become a cliché long before Kander and Ebb came up with their award winning show and film.

The song is performed principally by Velma Kelly in a well choreographed scene in a jazz club. At the time this was set - 1924 - jazz hadn't been around for long, and was regarded by the more Puritanical as a corrupting influence, not the least because this was the era of Prohibition. As Velma performs she is unaware that the police have arrived to arrest her for murder. Velma Kelly was based on Belva Gaertner, who like the other principal female character in Chicago (Roxie Hart) was tried for shooting her lover dead. Both women were acquitted in spite of rather than because of the evidence.

I could picture you with your scarfs and jewelry and fish net stockings and the crowd roaring for more.

I love, love, love your rendition of this grand show tune.

Singing supercharges the endorphins - those "feel good" chemicals so great for healing!

Another brilliant performance, Cheryl! So much fun!!
Always a treat to visit your studio and hear your rendition
of a classic like this.
Love, love, love it!!!
