CD Sunday Challenge - 'Songs from the Shows'

Hello there, goodness gracious we have just got through a very heavy thunder storm!  I wish I had left the car out now, the rain would have washed it, lol.  The CD Sunday Challenge has been chosen by Carol, and it is to choose something from a CD, which reminds you of a Song from the Shows.

I had to scratch my head on this one, and look through my very limited CD collection.  I came across some toppers from the 'Destinations'  CD from Crafters Companion, which was featured on the  Crafters Inspiration CD 9 (Spring edition).  Here is my card:

As you can see this features Paris, and I thought of the song 'April in Paris'.  Here is the info:

‘April in Paris’ – Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

1930s jazz standard ‘April in Paris’ first became a hit thanks to a debut 1934 rendition by Freddy Martin, but it wasn’t until its timely revival in 1952 as the title hit for a Doris Day musical film that the song was properly welcomed into the jazz canon. 
 And you can listen to the recording here:
I noticed that my entry for 'All creatures great and small' was chosen as top 3 by Jocelyn - so thank you vey much!
Thanks for dropping by - Lynn x
