“She comes from the Isle of Gods, and also looks like Aphrodite, the Showborn: Irene Day. She sings “Somewhere over the Rainbow” at the preview for the Jazz Rally in the Rheingold Hall, not as heartbreaking as Judy Garland but she touches hearts like Audrey Hepburn’s “Moon River” in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”.– Inge Hufschlag
