Louis Armstrong knows how to make us value life and the environment in which we live. His songs can certainly provide you with a new perspective on life because of their much deeper message.
They’re not only entertaining, but they also have the ability to deeply touch your emotions. Armstrong’s compositions are those that may inspire and offer a larger message to the world.
Louis Armstrong is not just one of the greatest musicians of all time, but his 1967 performance is also up there with the best. He serenaded the world with his mesmerizing voice and amazing blue jacket in a truly unforgettable way.
If you watch this legendary jazz musician, you will definitely think that the world is a wonderful place. His performance is incomparable. His song “What A Wonderful World” has reached all corners of the globe, and even young people are familiar with it.
Did you know that the song was actually not meant for him to sing?
The song was originally offered to Tony Bennett, an American singer who is well-known for his popular standard track “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.” However, Bennett declined the offer. And thank goodness that Armstrong said yes!
It’s wonderful that he did since his raspy voice added distinctiveness to the song. There can be no doubt that no one could compare to Armstrong’s version. The issue was, that marketing this song was practically non-existent. This is why it was such a failure in the United States.
This song became a huge success in Great Britain, sitting at the top of the charts for almost an entire month. Its popularity quickly spread across the globe, touching the hearts of millions of people everywhere.
Today, his song may be heard in several films and television programs. There are also a lot of covers of “What A Beautiful World” from various ages. Nothing, however, can compare to the original.
That is why the vintage 1967 performance video on YouTube has reemerged as a viral hit. It was resubmitted in 2016 and has already received over 36 million views and almost 500,000 likes!
The myth in the film is seen in his components. It was a little 2-minute video, but it’s clear that he was having a good time. He smiled throughout the performance as he sang to the music supplied by the band behind him. He appeared to be very satisfied.
Even those who have seen the video agree. One user wrote, “With all that is happening in this world, hatred, racism, the killing of the innocent, I just had to come here to listen to this. Praying for a wonderful world !!!” Another user said, “There’s something about him….. Like how he looks so happy singing this song….. Like he really means every word….”
Growing up, Louis Armstrong had a difficult life. He grew up in “The Battlefield,” a very impoverished section of town.
He wasn’t able to have the complete family he desired because his father abandoned him when he was born. Yes, he had a tough existence, but he teaches us through this song that life may still be fantastic even if you don’t have everything you want.
