The Music of Richard Nixon and Pearl Bailey
What a time to be presenting Music in the White House! No, really… what BETTER time to be presenting Music in the White House?
Having spent the last few months immersing myself in presidential history and the story that music tells about us, I have been at turns amazed, grateful, proud, tearful, comforted and consoled… and I have laughed!
Time for you to laugh, too.
Who knew that Richard Nixon was a pianist. Okay, maybe not the best pianist in the world, but good enough to have the cheek to try and accompany Pearl Bailey. It almost makes you forget Watergate.
Ah, the good ol’ days…
Here is a two minute clip that proves it happened. THAT’S Music in the White House, for you.
