Doris Day officially declared as the oldest living artist to reach America’s Billboard ‘Top 150’ Music Chart (with her album “My Heart”)

January 14, 2012 8 Comments

Hollywood showbiz icon Doris Day –  received last night the Los Angeles Film Critics Association’s ‘Career Achievement Award’ – now she also has another distinction to her name, that of being the oldest living person to ever reach the ‘Top 150’ on the American Billboard Music Chart.

At 87 years old, Ms. Day has now officially surpassed George Burns and her dear friend crooner Tony Bennett following the December 2011 release of her US album, “My Heart.” Both performers held the honor at 84 and 85 years of age, respectively.

The 37th Annual Los Angeles Film Critics Association awards took place last night at the InterContinental Hotel in Los Angeles. Although Ms. Day did not attend the ceremony in person the association took great pleasure in formally announcing that she had won their 2011 Career Achievement Award. The tribute was announced in front of an audience of other legendary Hollywood guests.

“I want to thank the Los Angeles Film Critics Association for this wonderful award. I am so grateful and amazed that my work is still remembered. I loved making films and never thought of it as work. I once told my Mom that I would do it for nothing and she said, ‘Doris, I wouldn’t tell anyone that.’ But I never thought about the money, only about how much I loved performing. Thanks again. Love, Doris.” – Statement issued  prior to the awards ceremony

    I love you Doris!! I have watched your movies over and over again. And this may sound silly, but when I saw your movie,either it was Calamity Jane or Annie Oakley, where you sang that song ” Secret Love” Maybe I have a ” senior moment ” I was in high school, anyway I was taking a shower and I was singing that song! You are an inspiration to many. And I am so happy. You will always be in my heart.
