    And she shows the cat filmmakers exactly how to do this without even having to try.

  10. Janis Amzallag says:

    Just experienced her rendition of Grizabella live in Cats playing in Toronto. She took my breath away and brought down the house. Just an awesome talent.

  11. David 777 says:

    30 seconds in & I’m already tearing up

  15. Tiffany Elefano says:

    I had the absolute pleasure of seeing her sing this song live today in Toronto! Brought me to tears; her voice and ability to convey emotions are incredible

  16. tankmaster1018 says:

    I was actually more impressed by the power behind her low notes at 1:27 and 2:50 then the big finish… Also, that first bridge from 1:37 to 1:55 was just absolutely stunning. It feels like someone pouring ice water down my back when she gets to those big notes for the first time!
    Edit: I think I'm in love…

  17. Zachary Manier says:

    I think most of us can agree that the modulation on the word “memory” at 3:18 is one of the best notes in all of Broadway…

    But the way she lands that note with that timbre literally scalped me. 🤤

    My mom has tickets upcoming and was debating on going after seeing the movie, but I told her she needs to go STAT!

  18. Danielle says:

    I have no words, this is too beautiful

  19. abby b says:

    Her version is the best rendition I’ve heard

  20. Shaannon James says:

    Wow.. she brought tears to my eyes you cam really feel the emotions!..x

    Why are broadway vocalists so superior!

  22. cait feanny says:

    i met this talented woman in toronto and omg she is the most humble person. as well as having incredible skills she has an amazing heart and is willing to share her advice to others. such an amazing person.

  23. Colby Jones says:

    I heard a little Barbara Streisand and Celine Dion mixed

  24. VocalEdgeTV says:

    No expense spared. They brought out the “high end” Casio keyboard. But yes, this lady is so strangely gorgeous. And voice VOICE…DAYUM!! That is art. She’s not playing. The phrasing …wow.

  25. Captn says:

    Sounds like a combination of heather headley and betty buckley

  26. Jennifer Rainey says:

    I saw her live in 2018 and it was amazing. The only thing I like about Cats was this song and Keri René Fuller singing it. I was looking for a YouTube video of her version since seeing the play. Best version ever!!!

  27. Kenz0104 says:

    Anyone know if this version is on itunes?

  28. Immortal door 960 says:

  35. Kevin says:

    This was like… flawless.

  36. Hey I'm Genevieve says:

    She's SO DAMN GOOD at this song!! She has incredibly precise control and articulation. This is the only rendition of "Memory" that I truly like and even LOVE. I listen to this all the time, it's AMAZING.

  37. PHOENIX MINISTRY says:

    She is giving me Céline Dion vibes with her “optional” breathing just to appear human before us. She’s not doing a very good job tho. #Inhuman #MasterfulSinging #Wigless

  38. Fennec Fox says:

    I keep on coming here to listen this. She's incredible. So touching, thank you ❤️

  39. rachel k says:

    Betty Buckley and Elaine Paige own this but she is very good.

  41. Trevor Network says:

    Saw her live in Boston this evening. She was absolute perfection. An absolute legend. The audience was stunned silent, and then the applause, and cheering was deafening.

  42. Victoria Bowler says:

    Saw her in Boston and the final belt shook my soul, absolutely brilliant!

  43. Aceris says:

    My wig was chosen for the Heaviside layer

  44. britt234997 says:

  45. Chade Fallstar says:

    This is the only other rendition that comes close to Elaine Paige's, and it is damn close, almost enough to bring me, a grown man, to tears. Bravo, outstanding.

  46. tobii says:

    As soon as she started singing, I got goosebumps

  55. Sarah Rivera says:

  59. Kate T-G says:

    How is it possible that I can watch 3:06 to the end 20 times in a row and get goosebumps every. damn. time. ??? Either my body is broken or I've just heard the voice of God.

    Edit: I'm on round 21 and am now crying uncontrollably. Please send help.

  62. SxFm says:

  63. Rachel Helen says:

    I’ve listened to this an unholy amount in the last 24 hours, and I get chills and cry every damn time. I want to see her sing this song live SO bad

  64. Isaiah Baston says:

    Hey can we maybe put this on Spotify?

  65. mema says:

    She looks like a white panther. No offence meant here. She is simply gorgeous

  66. Clarina Mascarenhas says:

    Gorgeous. Amazing. I am in love.

  67. Andrew Perucho says:

    Seeing her perform this live was such an out of body experience.

  68. Natalya Duncan says:

    My phone speaker literally couldn’t cope with her voice STUNNING

  69. Audrey Penington says:

    Sometimes I start to feel talented and then videos like this remind me I’m about as skilled as a cabbage.

  70. Lucy Hinds says:

    She puts so much emotion in her face. If I did that my mouth would hurt and I would be able to move it 😂

  71. FrankD491 says:

    Is she from Avatar?
    I bet she has a tail.

  72. Mad Juicy says:

    Idc what theatre she was preforming in, I would literally get up and give her a standing ovation myself…

  73. Richard W says:

    First video I ever saw that brought tears to my eyes!! Such passion and such a powerful voice !! The voice of an angel…..

  74. Ryan Brown says:

    I saw her live and this video cannot come close to communicating the power of her voice. Also, I really want a video of the entrance of Grizabella. Her “you see the boarder/corner of her…” lines were so incredible. I love her!

  75. Theriddlesoflife says:

    Just saw her live and my jaw legit dropped during this song

  76. Keighlys Art says:

    Her technique is the most impeccable that I’ve heard. So beautiful.
    She is perfect for this role.

  77. M.R says:

    She does have a beautiful voice and articulation.. but IMO emotions just not there.
    Elaine Paige felt the song, therefore her expressions were natural.

    https://youtu.be/8gd_ohoPzYc

  78. Nathan Woodings says:

    CEO of articulation

  79. Kat M says:

    I can never watch any rendition of this song, it reminds me of all of my Jellicle cats who have gone to the heavyside layer, and my little Ginny kitty is going to have to make that journey soon…

  80. Rudy Abrego says:

    I have seen her perform this in the play in person. I got chills when she peaked….. she made me fall in love with this play..

  81. Kristine Kelly says:

    Just saw her perform this on stage at The Hippodrome theater in Baltimore last night. I legit cried. It was phenomenal.

  82. maddie Mith says:

    She was the Grizabella when I saw cats

  83. Anna Goldizen says:

    the “touch me” caught me off guard… damn what a voice

  84. Brenda Urbina Gutierrez says:

    is there any sheet music for this version online?

  85. Am I homophobic if I hate myself? says:

    Her voice somewhat reminds me of Elaine Paige's performance of Grizabella, and that makes me love it ❤

  86. P!ATD Fangirl Trash says:

    I love this because you can tell how much she’s singing this song from her soul.

  87. cassie newsham says:

    Watched this too many times…she makes it look effortless.

  88. LightTruthLove says:

    Incredible diction. Wonderful range. Bravo.

    Dear God, can I borrow someone’s pearls? I have nothing to clutch…..🤯

  91. UkuleleLauren says:

    I just saw her in the national tour, and wow, was she incredible! Her performance gave me chills and brought a tear to my eye. Truly outstanding.

    Memory
    Turn your face to the moonlight
    Let your memory lead you
    Open up, enter in
    If you find there the meaning of what happiness is
    Then a new life will begin

    Memory
    All alone in the moonlight
    I can smile at the old days
    I was beautiful then
    I remember a time I knew what happiness was

    Let the memory live again

    Burnt out ends of smokey days
    The stale cold smell of morning
    A streetlamp dies – another night is over
    Another day is dawning

    Daylight
    I must wait for the sunrise
    I must think of a new life
    And I mustn't give in
    When the dawn comes, tonight will be a memory too
    And a new day will begin

    Sunlight through the trees in summer
    Endless masquerading
    Like a flower as the dawning is breaking
    The memory is fading

    Touch me
    It's so easy to leave me
    All alone with a memory
    Of my days in the sun
    If you touch me, you'll understand what happiness is
    Look, a new day has begun

  93. Elizabeth Phillips says:

    Seeing it live is a whole different experience, she made me cry fat tears.

  94. Phoebe Redfern says:

    and that’s on vocal stability

  95. againstthetimes says:

    Oh My Gosh!!!! This is so good! Keri's voice is so clear! It's very beautiful! 😀

  96. lisha k says:

    i need to know her lipstick brand she used in this

  97. Joseph Johnson says:

    Saw this live. It was an INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL moment absolutely destroyed by the audience bursting into applause prematurely while she was on the high E.. I was so incredibly livid. So happy to have this here though

  98. Joseph Johnson says:

    Btw I love when singers go for no breathe between "all alone with the memory" and "of my days in the sun". To break up such a brilliant line is criminal

  99. Miranda McGuire says:

    If you think this is good… I saw her live over the summer and I will tell you she was even more amazing than this. When she belted out "touch me" I think pretty much everyone in the audience was crying. She's absolutely incredible.

  100. nala beans says:

    girl looks like a cat.

    in the MOST complimentary way.

    somehow her makeup/costume for griz makes her look LESS like a cat. don't be fooled, she's pure feline.
