My Embarrassment in Behalf of a Great Singer - Kathryn Grayson
Once an amazing singer, Kathryn Grayson, came to Charlottesville. She spoke and was briefly interviewed by the audience. It was a truly lovely occasion and a pleasure to hear her speak.
So imagine my embarrassment when someone raised their hand to speak and said to her, "What was it like to sing alongside Mario Lanza?"
What an insult! No, I don't mean Mario Lanza was not an exquisite singer himself. I love his singing and all his movies. There was no on like him.
No. I was embarrassed because the implication was Kathryn Grayson should feel honored beyond her station for the golden opportunity to sing in the presence of such a man as Lanza.
Disgraceful and embarrassing.
