Remembering the day with Evita. Julie Covington introduced Evita to the world in 1976.
Here is the blurb on the You tube for this number written by pbamse Oct 27 2008
Julie Covington was the singer who introduced “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” in the original studio recording back in 1976. She scored an international number one with the song and the single reached No.1 in the UK Singles Chart in February 1977. She was later given the opportunity to originate the role in the stage production of “Evita”, but she declined, explaining that she thought the impact of her recording would be diminished, and Elaine Paige took the role. This video shows real Eva Duarte de Perón, “Evita”, original footage.
