necessary viewing: Renée Fleming on The Late Show with David Letterman September 26, 2013 By sybariticsinger 2 Comments America’s lyric soprano sweetheart, Renée Fleming, helps to prove that opera really is everywhere… [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPZc6RT2wlY&w=640&h=480]
I’m always so worried when an opera singer appears in mainstream things that the appearance will be completely tone-deaf (mostly due to the fact that pop culture has no idea what we do) but this was just completely charming! And I love David’s response to hearing her voice, “Did you know you sound like that?” Hee hee.
Exactly! I think having more legit singers take on the mainstream spotlight can only help the cause.
