GRACE KELLY ACTRESS (1952)

Day 6 and Christmas is fast approaching. My twelve days to Christmas famous historical people in songs themed post today brings you Grace Kelly. Another beautiful and iconic figure that we lost way too young. In the 1950s she starred in some classic films including; High Noon, To Catch A Thief and Rear Window. She retired from acting aged just 26 in 1956 to marry Prince Rainier of Monaco and take the position of Princess Grace. She suffered a stroke while driving home in September 1982 and died from injuries from the resulting car crash. Her father John B Kelly won three Olympic Gold Medals for Sculling.

Grace Kelly has been referenced in many songs; by Madonna in “Vogue” and Billy Joel in “We Didn’t Start The Fire”. But the song that I have included in this post is from Lebanese born singer songwriter Mika and it is simply titled “Grace Kelly”. The song takes its melody from an aria in Rossini’s ‘The Barber Of Seville’ and was written in a kind of protest at the record company who asked Mika to be a bit more like Craig David. In 2007 the song made the top 5 in at least ten countries and topping the charts in five of them; UK, Belgium, France, Ireland and Italy.
