1. HERE I AM

Music & Lyrics by Bob Merrill
from the Broadway musical, HENRY, SWEET HENRY
Book by Nunnally Johnson
Published by EMI Easy Listening Music, Universal Music
Arranged & Orchestrated by Fred Barton

with Don Ameche in
Henry Sweet Henry


When I told my friends and fans I was recording this album, the first thing they said was, “I hope you’re singing something from Henry, Sweet Henry!” Since there is already a wonderful original cast recording, I hadn’t planned to do so. Then I started remembering how much I loved playing Gil; working with the incredible cast that included Carol Bruce and Don Ameche; being guided by the remarkable creative team of director George Roy Hill and choreographer Michael Bennett (on whom I had a schoolgirl crush!); and most of all, my favorite songwriter and beloved mentor, Bob Merrill. It was the show that first put me on the map—how could I not sing something from it? So thank you, dear friends (and specially Fred Barton); I’ve taken your advice.
