      I think her voice was better in her later years.

      Many vocalists could sing so beautifully without fireworks, special effects and other theatrical garbage.  All they needed was a good arrangement & a good band.

      Thanks for this diary.

        tribute song to her, because of the great similarities between her Mom's voice and Rosemary Clooney's. A great song, by Kate Campbell, entitled "Rosemary."

        Her voice was the first I knew
        She always liked popular tunes
        You know she’s from Kentucky too
        My mother sings
        Sounds like to me
        Rosemary Clooney
        Can’t miss the start of the race
        I wanna hear the song they play
        I think of her on Derby Day
        My mother sings
        Sounds like to me
        Rosemary Clooney
        Smooth as silk
        Rich and deep
        With just a hint
        Of Whiskey
        Her voice was the first I knew
        She really could play those St. Louis Blues
        And you’d know if you heard her croon
        My mother sings
        Or could it be Rosemary sounds
        Like my mother Sue

        I would do a YouTube link, but I am not finding it among her songs posted there.
