From DORISDAYTRIBUTE.COM: Doris Day is currently doing a select amount of press to continue to promote the release of her new US album “My Heart“, as well as to publicize the new cds released for her birthday this year. In addition she helped to promote the week-long tribute to her movies on TCM (Turner Classic Movies on television.) American fans can look forward to even more great exposure which started appearing the week of thanksgiving and the week following (just prior to the release of the new album). As any Day devotee will know, it’s rare for the star to do press so we think it’s truly wonderful that she’s so passionate about a "return" to the limelight after so many years!
Below is a list of some of the publicity recorded. Keep posted for more news as we get it:
Online: Yahoo! and AOL and hundreds of others. Google (DORIS DAY/ MY HEART) and check it out!
YES, THIS REALLY WAS/IS A BIG DEAL! DORIS IS THE OLDEST STAR TO EVER HAVE A NEW RECORDING OF PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED MATERIAL IN THE TOP 10 ON WORLD MUSIC CHARTS! And such an array of new releases and tv publicity upcoming for her birthday this year is unprecedented.
