In 1985, Philippine female singer Kuh Ledesma released Unforgettable, an album containing time-honored popular songs by such esteemed American songwriters as George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, and Hoagy Carmichael. Throughout the album, Kuh Ledesma imbues a delicate strength, delving into the lyrics and giving the songs a sensuous glow. Kuh Ledesma has much talent, and is easily one of the Philippines' best singers. One song performed here is the oft-recorded "My Funny Valentine," composed by Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart. Kuh Ledesma applies an introspective, delicate touch to this beautiful ballad, and the piano adds a warm incandescence. Also performed is the lovely "Embraceable You," composed by George Gershwin, arguably America's greatest composer and his brother, the lyricist Ira Gershwin.
