A Voice Like This

Oh, that I could sing like this. I don't have anything close to her voice, or her history that you know feeds the passion behind every powerhouse note. I am humbled and full of catharsis whenever I listen to her most famous number from George Cukor's 1954 film, A Star Is Born (shown below in three simultaneous takes based on the director's wardrobe considerations). The song makes me want to sit in a dimly lit room, alone and drinking straight gin while dwelling in that love that got away.
