Florence Foster Jenkins Mozart’s aria Queen of Night
Was Florence Foster Jenkin’s one of the Rebecca Black’s of classical music? Fueled by passion and later on her father’s inheritance Florence pursued her career as an opera singer. However, she lacked talent and refused to believe it. With that in mind she would hire out Carnegie Hall and personally give out tickets. People would turn up just to laugh. You can read more about her here.
The pianist does a tremendous job following her and, of course, not bursting out laughing.
