One for the Old-Timers

This is awesome. From the Daily News: Palm Beach Home for Adults stages ‘Senior Idol’ competition.

When the six finalists were done, Olga Kraus, 90, an operatic soprano and winner of last year’s competition, entertained residents with “The Man I Love.”
Like others at the home, Kraus said she had no professional experience.
“I did try out once for the Ted Mack Amateur Hour,” she said, “but I just couldn’t get the quiver out of my voice.”

Thank goodness no one tried any Jay-Z, lest someone needs to call the doctor… and no, I’m not talking about Dre.

Oh, and congratulations to the winner, Jerry Abramowitz, 79, a retired hospital worker, who “wowed the audience, and especially his wife, Estelle, with ‘Mona Lisa.'”
