You'll Never Walk Alone

Mark Winkler - Musical Moments 05

Here with Melody Jacobson Krever my first and I guess only girlfriend. We were so young then!

Song: You'll Never Walk Alone

Composed By: Rodgers & Hammerstein

Sung By: Melody Krever & Mark Winkler

Accompanied By: Ruth Girard

Date Recorded: 1980

Here's a song I found ...recorded over 37 years ago. It’s a duet with my first (and only) girlfriend Melody Jacobson Krever. This was when I was thinking of being a singer.

Melody was very gracious in this piece ... she took the back seat and let me wail away. The recording is poor and distorted with bad intonation, but there's something about our youth that I like about it.

On a side note, there is a bit of irony here. My voice teacher at the University of Michigan was Katherine Hilgenberg. She performed the original role of Nettie Fowler in the Lincoln Center version of Carousel. Nettie was the women who sang You'll Never Walk Alone. So now 35 years later I would like to dedicate this performance in memory of Katherine Hilgenberg.
