Dawn Upshaw Sings Kurt Weill

Ira Gershwin's was George's brother and frequent collaborator. They were undoubtedly one of the most successful songwriting teams of all time. But after George's death Ira wrote the words for musicals and songs by other composers. He collaborated on the 1941 musical Lady in the Dark with Kurt Weill. One of the most memorable songs from the show is "My Ship" sung here by Dawn Upshaw.

- Paul E. Robinson
