Getting to know you

"Getting to know you" is the popular song from the 1956 movie "The King and I" starring Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr, sung by Marni Nixon.  I am sure all of you have heard this song a thousand times.  But have you heard, or in fact, have you ever watched a performance by a trio of 3 singers, one from America, one from Japan and one from China singing "Getting to know you"?

Here it is.  The Japanese singer is Yukiji Asaoka, a Japanese actress and singer.  The American was Dinah Shore.  And who was this Chinese lady? She is Grace Chang.  Grace Chang?  The Chinese audience will know her as Ge Lan (葛蘭), the popular Chinese film star of the 50s and 60s.
