Song Of The Day: Marni Nixon, “I Could Have Danced All Night”

Sporano and "ghost singer" Marni Nixon would be 91 today. She provided the voice for Deborah Kerr in The King And I, Natalie Wood in West Side Story, and Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady. She received no credit for her work until much later. That’s her singing "I Could Have Danced All Night" for Audrey Hepburn.

    1. They wouldn’t have needed to dub her voice. There used to be (or maybe is still and I just didn’t find it) a video of Audrey Hepburn singing this, and honestly, she was a pretty good singer.

    1. She certainly did. Honestly, though, I’ve heard Audrey Hepburn herself sing it (and I can’t find the video now) and hers was quite pleasant, for someone who isn’t a singer.
