My View: A Love Letter From Judy Collins Delivered To Cafe’ Carlyle

My View: A Love Letter From Judy Collins Delivered To Cafe’ Carlyle

“Not A Day Goes Bye” that Judy Collin’s music is not heard on the planet and her new Sondheim show is a wonderful celebration of Stephen Sondheim’s words and music.  Her unique artistry has captivated audiences for over fifty years and landed her a spot in the Grammy Hall of Fame. Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century.

Towards the end of her show at Cafe Carlyle she thanked the lights and sound directors for “helping make Judy Collins, Judy Collins”, However, as the opening night audience would agree, Judy Collins doesn’t need much help to be Judy Collins. Her physicality and voice are unmistakably present.  This is one letter I hope gets returned to Cafe Carlyle.
