You may have already seen the coming attractions for the movie Madame Florence which is set to come out in August in the U.S. (already came out in the U.K. sometime in May). It’s a movie starring Meryl Streep as the boisterous and overly confident Florence Foster Jenkins who dreamed of being an opera singer. However her voice was amateur at best and was met with much criticism and ridicule.

But she did it. And she eventually even made it to perform at Carnegie Hall. She continued to sing and perform because,

“People may say I couldn’t sing, but no one can say I didn’t sing.”

~Florence Foster Jenkins

(1868 – 1944)

Housekeeping Note: Meryl Streep is perhaps one of my top 3 favorite actresses of all time. The woman can film a comedy in the morning, take her lunch break, and then turn around to play the Iron Lady for the afternoon.
