Grace Jones Singing “Tomorrow” From Annie


Just say that to yourself over and over again:

“Grace Jones singing ‘Tomorrow’ from Annie” until you believe it–because it was a reality, honey.

In 1977, the exotic Jamaican-born disco chanteuse lipsynched her version of the bouncy moppet showtune on a syndicated TV show called Celebrity Cabaret as jaws dropped.

She wore an orange shmatte complete with snood, and the net effect was so surreal I feel the world hasn’t been the same since.

It’s a shame the producers of the upcoming Annie revival have already announced the little girl who’s playing the title role.

I say bump the bitch and get Grace.

She would finally give that happy, smiley show some edge.

Thanks to Pieces bar’s Vodka Stinger for the tip.
