Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe ….
As today is Wednesday and given the JTBB’s affinity for Blood Sweat & Tears, we’ll give a shout out to Wednesday’s child with “God Bless The Child.” Did You Know …
- “God Bless the Child” was written by Billie Holiday and Arthur Herzog, Jr. in 1939. It was first recorded on May 9, 1941 under the Okeh label.
- In 1976, Holiday’s version of the song was honored with the Grammy Hall of Fame Award and it has also been included in the Songs of the Century in the RIAA and National Endowment for the Arts joint initiative intended to promote a better understanding of America’s musical and cultural heritage in our schools.
Hope to see you at Randy Loren’s Dolce Vita Ristorante in Schenectady on Friday! Reservations recommended: (518) 357-3324
