Annette Hanshaw is already well documented on YouTube,but this song is so moving that it deserves an airing.of this Irving Berlin song.
The shy,retiring Annette after quitting show business in 1936,spent the rest of her years working as a volunteer at her local church.In an interview in the 1950s,she stated that she had no regrets finishing her career.
Her voice and face are a perfect match.The lyrics of this Berlin song,were not written by him, are very sad and touching.
He often wrote songs with reference to incidents in his life
Although Jewish. he remarried in 1926.to a high society US/Irish,catholic girl.
Her father disowned her,and disinherited her from his massive wealth in protest.However,as a gesture of their own religious tolerance,She continued being a catholic,he a Jew,but their 3 daughters were raised Protestants.
The crash of 1929,saw her father's wealth wiped out,but Berlin had no hesitation in financially supporting him,in those tough times.He seemed to have no bitterness about being cut out of his wife's family,because he was a Jew.
Berlin wrote,"l'm dreaming of a white Christmas"yet his dream was shattered when his only son died one Christmas day.The Berlin marriage remained unbroken until death,the same can be said of Annette and her marriage.
