Chicago cabaret favorite, Laura Freeman hosts a tribute to Doris Day. Having recorded over 600 songs, Day is known for such hits as Sentimental Journey, Secret Love and Everybody Loves a Lover.

 

Doris was not just a pretty voice and a pratfall.  She represents the spirit of us all, at various times in history. She was the voice of the returning service men from World War II. She was the voice of the early women’s lib movement, representing single career woman everywhere. She was also the voice of a grieving gay community, at the height of the AIDS crisis. Her rendition of My Buddy, sung for her friend Rock Hudson, was used to say goodbye to sons, brothers and lovers in the early 80’s.

 

Miss Freeman…”becomes the character reflected in the song. It shines in her face, in her voice, and above all, in her heart.” - Carla Gordon, Cabaret Scenes
