Celebrating George Gershwin on his birthday!

George Gershwin was a composer of show tunes and classics. As a musician he was a pianist as well. He died too young at the age of 38.

Here he is with "Someone to Watch Over, Me"..

I featured his composition "Summertime" in one of my recent Battle of the Bands which you can revisit here. Below is a version of "Rhapsody in Blue"..

Years after his death his legacy lives on in Broadway Shows and by artists around the world!

Mike, as soon as I saw your post title, "Rhapsody in Blue" started playing in my head. I'm glad you posted a version of that song -Love his music!

Happy Birthday to Mr. Gershwin! Gone too soon.
