"What is often forgotten is that Audrey Hepburn sang "Happy Birthday Mr. President" to JFK for his final birthday in 1963." (JFK's birthday May 29)

 

Can someone please elaborate on this?  Did it really happen? It's strange that I can't find a photo or a video of this event on line.

According to Barry Paris' biography of Audrey Hepburn, Hepburn sang Happy Birthday Dear Jack at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City May 29th, 1963--and her version caused much less publicity than Marilyn Monroes' version did in 1962.I apologize for the inaccuracy in my previous post-- Hepburns' song was "Dear Jack"

.......Audrey only mouthed the words. It was Marni Nixon that actually did the singing.

Kennedy must have been dating Gene Tierney and Audrey Hepburn at the same time.

 

Here's a cute song about him

 

 

Not at the same time. He dated Gene Tierney around 1946-47. Hepburn was an unknown teenager in England then.
