"I am a survivor of sexual abuse and domestic violence. I'm from the South side of Chicago. You know from a lower-middle-class family. I'm dark skinned. I'm plus-sized. I'm afro-centric and therefore I'm marginalized even within the margins."
Written by the great Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart for the 1937 musical Babes In Arms, "My Funny Valentine" is one of those genuinely timeless standards that put the Great in the Great American Songbook.
