America's Singing Sweethearts
Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald, America's Singing Sweethearts, starred together in eight musicals throughout their careers. They were acclaimed as the finest singing team in Hollywood, and many felt that they were the best-matched voices in the world. Remembered for songs like, Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life, Indian Love Call and Will You Remember?, they left behind them a rich legacy of unforgettable melody that is as beautiful today as it was yesterday.
This is a tribute to their work and legacy of song.
"When they sang they lifted your soul from an abyss to the highest floating cloud in the sky. To me they were what Lynn Fontanne and Alfred Lunt were to the spoken word and the drama of the theatre, they were what Pavlova and Nijinsky were to the dance world, they were the epitome of perfect blending and perfection. Both are gone now but they will never be forgotten --- their music will live forever. Their recordings and cassettes will be a constant reminder of the magic and superb artists they were. How fortunate we are to have these legacies."
