Diana Krall - Diana Krall Plays 'Fly Me To The Moon' Tribute To Late Neil Armstrong


Jazz singer Diana Krall paid a more than fitting tribute to the late, great Neil Armstrong during a performance at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday night; just hours after news of the astronaut death broke.
Performing the jazz standard 'Fly Me to the Moon', a song that has been performed countless times by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Tony Bennett, never has the song had such a deeper meaning than it did when Krall performed it on Saturday night. Jokingly, Krall then said, "he's probably thinking, 'Do I have to listen to that song again?'" after gazing up at the stars from the stage of the outdoor amphitheatre following her rendition.
Krall is but one of the many people to have shown their respects to the first man to walk on the moon, with musicians, footballers and other sports stars and politicians all thanking the late astronaut for his lasting inspiration an those immortal words he uttered when he took his first steps on the lunar surface.
After sending her love out to Armstrong and his family, the jazz impresario then followed it up with a tribute to her husband Elvis Costello. She performed a rendition of the song 'I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face,' changing the lyric to "his face," as an ode to the rock great. The rendition was in honour of Costello's birthday, as the singer turned 58 on Saturday.
