Diana Krall Set To Play For The World's Most Famous Astronauts
Diana Krall will be the sole performer at Celebrate Apollo, the official event celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the moonwalk, on July 20th at the National Air And Space Museum in Washington DC. Krall will take the stage alongside the Columbia module to serenade Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong with "Fly Me To The Moon." Members of Congress and almost every living NASA
astronaut will be in attendance.
This prestigious event is only one highlight of an already busy summer including the following:
*Diana Krall performs "Bye Bye Blackbird" in the film and on the soundtrack to the Michael Mann film Public Enemies starring Johnny Depp, Marion Cotillard and Christian Bale out now.
*Willie Nelson's new album "American Classic" (out Aug 25th on Blue Note Records) features a stunning duet of "If I Had You" with Diana Krall.
*In July NPR's Morning Edition will air Krall's recent interview with host Steve Inskeep.
*Diana recently performed two sold out shows at Carnegie Hall of which Variety said "In the spacious concert hall, Krall still manages to summon an intimacy that leaves listeners breathlessly involved in the romantic narrative." She'll continue touring the US throughout the summer.
