It must be an illusion, but deaths in whatever field seem to come in bunches.

This is certainly sad news.

I heard her sing "Beautiful Land" for the first time last week on the radio. I thought what a wonderful song this was to sing with children. I've been around infants too much lately... Such a nice simple song though, and her voice is so emotive.

Beautiful Land

Anthony Newley, Leslie Bricusse

Red is the color of a lot of lollipops,

Orange is any orange on a tree.

Yellow's the color of a bag of lemon drops,

Green is a piece of seaweed in the sea.

Blue is the color of the sky in summertime

Indigo is a Siamese cat's eyes.

Violet's the color of a flow'r in wintertime.

These are the colors of the rainbow skies.

There is a beautiful land

Where all your dreams come true;

It's all tied up in a rainbow,

All shiny and new;

But it's not easy to find

No matter what you do.

It's not on top of a mountain

Or beneath the deep blue sea

Or in London zoo or in Timbuktoo,

Or in Timbuckthree.

And if you travelled the world

From China to Peru,

There's no beautiful land on the chart.

An explorer could not begin

To discover its origin

For the beautiful land is in your heart.
