For those of you who remember America’s Sweetheart, Doris Day, you will love Laura Freeman’s “Sentimental Journey”The Music of Doris day” on May 29th, honoring her 90th birthday and featuring song titles such as “Secret love”, “Everybody Loves a Lover” and of course “Sentimental Journey”.She was more than just another pretty blonde- she was the woman men wanted to come back from war for- the girl next door and with a voice that was as dainty and precious as any other.
