The crowd in Sheep Meadow was small, didn't laugh at any of Hope's jokes and Rufus lip-synched...sorry but that's the fact, jack.
My good friend Sidney Barnes discovered Chaka Khan. He’s probably the most famous person you’ve never heard of!
Well, that’s the problem with FR.... no matter what historical event you post on, there’s ALWAYS somebody that was actually there lol
It’s funny they lip synched, cuz this video is overdubbed with a remix of the studio single anyway... double-dubbed I guess
I think her and Dolly Parton were in some sort of 70s battle of the races there lol
Chicago talent agent?
I thought she got into the business through her family, had siblings in bands and such
She’s not lip synching to this song, it’s overdubbed with a remix of the studio single... the record company put this together recently
Guess I’m a sucker for a girl who can flash a smile like that, but I’ll put you down for a gargantuan ‘two thumbs down’ lol
I remember Hope telling his jokes to no response then retelling them with an audible laugh and applause track.
I am probably part of the VERY small overlap between Rufus and Bob Hope fans- can’t believe they booked her for a Bob Hope special
C’mon, be nice
There is a thankfully very small but unfortunately very active group of freepers who seem to be in constant competition to see who can post the ugliest and most adolescent posts. You probably win more often than most.
Rufus and Bob Hope played the same venue!!!??? What, wasn’t Guy Lombardo available?
I was thinking Andrews Sisters lol
Racist posts feed the Left’s disingenuous narrative re. conservatives... hurting the cause of freedom immensely, that’s my concern
Per Wikipedia: Though she sang at both the 2000 Democratic and Republican conventions, Khan says that she is more of a "Democratic-minded person".
Actually, Chaka Khan, for the most part, republicans are more "democratic" than Democrats these days.
Yes, I do. Thank you.
We share that concern. Unfortunately the fact of people in the WH and the Trayvon Martin case have brought that ugly sub-set of freepers out of the dark. I think that a couple of them are actually trying to tear FR down.
Actually, in 1974 the Andrews Sisters were starring on Broadway, less than a mile away (I forget the name of the play). Travolta got his start in the show as a ‘chorus boy’.
There’s all sorts of false flag trolls out there, the Left is engaged in an internet scorched-earth campaign in a desperate plea to salvage this vile regime- they know the Left is about to enter the political wilderness for a decade or two
Truth be told I love the Andrews Sisters, and so does the wife... at 50, I didn’t exactly grow up with them
I got a best hits CD I listen to all the time, most talented mob wife I’ve ever seen lol
Sid was one of the original Motown guys(he helped run the New York office), before he moved to Chi-town. He was in a band called “Rotary Connection” with Minnie Riperton in Chicago in the late ‘60’s. He knew Chaka’s family, and her as a young girl. Sid helped to groom her and introduced her to people to get her going. On a side note, Sidney’s best friend is George Clinton, of P-Funk fame, and they still collaborate today. Interesting guy...
