I love it when my Texas world and my London world intersect. I'm starting to grow quite fond of Ricky Gervais these days. How can I describe him? An English comedian, actor and film-maker who starred in the original version of The Office here in London, and is the executive producer of the US version. Maybe you've seen him on Letterman or hosting the Golden Globes this year. But did you know he is also a singer? Indeed, he was part of a pop duo in the 80's called Seona Dancing who was signed by London Records. Little known fact, I bet, but I'm wondering if you heard his US singing debut recently?
Now here's where the Texas part comes in. My granddaughter loves and adores Elmo. And when Elmo has trouble going to sleep at night, he sometimes gets a celebrity lullaby to carry him off to dream-land. Take a look at this clip of Ricky and Elmo--it really cranks up about half way through. Click once to view on the blog, or twice to view on You Tube full screen.
This one's for you Jordan!
