Harry Belafonte: ‘Sing Your Song’

In the singing and freedom vein was last night’s HBO offering, “Sing Your Song,”  a look at Harry Belafonte’s 84 years of singing and causes.  See below for a YouTube of “Day-O.”

Reading a review somewhere online reminded yours truly of seeing Paul Robeson’s American Masters program.  A sampling of his singing via YouTube is also below.

Yes, Robeson’s singing in English and Russian.  He also took up causes during his life, and paid the price.  A  brilliant intellect, he knew exactly what those words meant.
