    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.
