My Funny Valentine et al

When beauty therapist and amateur singer Alice Fredenham showed up at the ‘Britain’s got talent’ show in the UK in 2013 nobody was prepared for what was about to happen: a mesmerising, sensational performance. Suffering from very strong stage fright, as she had been thrown out of a previous other competition ( The Voice ) with a no vote from the judges she delivered something that must be one of the most haunting versions of this song ever. She subsequently did not win the competition, nor did her career take off in any big way afterwards, but those 3 minutes are priceless.

A more recent track from 2015 gives us this ultra chilled version of Gershwin’s “Somebody to watch over me”.

And last but not least: the great man himself at the piano with the same tune…
