A 90th Birthday Party for Marilyn Maye became an impromptu Cabaret performance that will forever remain in the musical memories of the Palm Beach folks that were present at Dick Robinson’s party for Ms Maye. One got an inkling of what would occur when Marvelous Marilyn walked into the penthouse with music director,arranger, and pianist extraordinaire Tedd Firth. Fresh from her latest triumph with Michael Feinstein at The Kravis Center a few nights earlier, Marilyn “surrendered” to the pleas of Dick and guests and gave a mini performance that left the well wishers in tears. It was one of the most heartfelt and emotional musical messages one could imagine and left hosts Dick and Sally Robinson almost “speechless” along with the rest of the gathering. Marilyn in her 90th year is giving all of us a present. She has the “Secret of Life” and “Here’s to Life and Here’s To You” Marilyn Maye.
