All of Me (50)

This is a wonderful autobiography written by Anne Murray.  She was always a singer and musician who I listened as a child. And I am SO proud to include  her among the best Canadian female singers, along with Celine Dion.

In this revealing autobiography, Canada’s first lady of song tells the whole story of her astonishing forty-year career in show business for the first time ever.

This book documents Anne Murray’s whirlwind life, from her humble beginnings in the tragedy-plagued coal-mining town of Springhill, Nova Scotia, to her arrival on the world stage with her first gold record in 1970 and her string of top-selling hit singles and albums.

In her trademark style, Anne tells of her early years growing up with her five brothers, and how she wrestled with the decision that affected her entire life–whether to give up on a promising teaching career for the high-risk world of show business. I am SO glad that she chose the latter course.

The book highlights so many of Anne Murray’s ups and downs. It is a treasure throve of magnificent details and euphoria’s such as is only fitting for a lady like Anne Murray.

I have a lot of her initial records, and now have most of her CD’s. She is one of these musicians that I come back to a lot, especially when I am going through though times.

This book is for all Canadians who are interested in Canadian musicians and of course in Anne Murray.
