Here are marvelous songs from the films of Gordon MacRae introduced by Heather MacRae’s stories of growing up in Hollywood as the daughter of a movie star.

Writes MacRae: “For the past several years whenever I perform my act I have always included ‘The Surrey With the Fringe on Top’ and ‘If I Loved You.’ Every time I do these great songs I feel an immediate connection with the audience. Because my father is so associated with the films Oklahoma! and Carousel there is, of course, instant recognition. Add to that the fact that I am his daughter and there is a very special feeling that exists between me, the material and the audience. I am remembering my father and interpreting these songs in my own style at the same time.

“So I decided to expand on this idea and do an act consisting entirely of Songs My Father Taught Me. I am very excited by this challenge: looking at songs from my father’s movies and giving them a whole new interpretation while still cherishing the wonderful memories of when people first heard them. I know my dad would have been very proud; he was always supportive of my career and he would be so happy to know that I am carrying on the MacRae tradition!”
