Loud but Honest: The Impact of Ethel Merman
She's the singer Cole Porter once compared to "a band going by." But Ethel Merman's legacy goes beyond her singular vocal power. Merman was one of the most important and influential vocalists of the 20th century, liberating herself (and us) by presenting a new kind of woman on Broadway a woman she christened the "brassy dame." Her trademark "belt" was nothing less than a declaration of independence written by such masters of the musical theater as Porter, George and Ira Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Jule Styne, Stephen Sondheim and Jerry Herman.
