She has just been honoured with a lifetime achievement award by the LA Film Critics Association (LAFCA). Doris had the most amazing career making 39 films and recording over 650 songs, 50 of which were big hits.
Actress/singer Yvonne Delahaye has been a fan for many years and has put together a tribute show to tell the incredible story of Doris's life and career and sing some of her songs. Yvonne says 'As a jazz singer I love singing songs from all the great 'Jazz Divas' Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Nina Simone amongst others. Doris is one of the best jazz singers and I just love her singing voice, with its purity, perfect pitch, emotion and natural phrasing so I felt her breadth of work deserved a show of its own. The show has all the songs we know and love Que Sera Sera, Sentimental Journey, Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps, Deadwood Stage, Secret Love, The Black Hills of Dakota, Pillow Talk, Move Over Darling and lots of others. Doris had an extraordinary life with 4 marriages and several tragedies, so between songs I'll be telling you more about this remarkable lady.'
Doris became the top-ranking female box-office star of all time and ranked sixth among the top ten box-office performers (male and female), as of 2009. Her iconic roles in Calamity Jane, Love Me Or Leave Me, The Man Who Knew Too Much and the rom-coms Pillow Talk and Lover Come Back with Rock Hudson, ensures that she will gain new fans for generations to come.
The show can be seen at The Greyhound Inn, Chalfont St Peter on Sunday 20th November. To book a table visit www.thegreyhoundinn.net.
