Signed black and white photograph of pop singer Neil Sedaka accompanied by endearing fan letter. Two items.
Combination: 1) Photograph signed: "Cheers/Neil/Sedaka". B/w, 8x10. Fine condition. 2) Typed letter signed: "Marnie Covert", in black ink, 1 page, 8½x11. Las Vegas, Nevada, no date. On rose bordered paper, to "Neal [sic] Sedaka", Neil Sedaka, American pop singer, in full: "Come January 1st 1984, here in Las Vegas, Nev. My mother Marcia Covert will wed Raymond R. Panozzo. Truly a momentous day in their lives, and also for my brother Gary, and Myself. They act as if they were in love for the first time and young at heart. They are truly a joy to behold. I know of moms tremendous admiration for you and I thought how wonderful it would be if you would send her a congratulatory letter or a inscribed signed photo of yourself that would be given to them on their Big Day on your behalf. I know that Mom and my new Dad would be very thrilled to receive it. I hope for your kindness and I thank you in advance. Appreciatively,". Normal mailing folds. Fine condition. This signed photograph is not the original photograph corresponding to the letter. These two items have been combined. Trained as a classical pianist, singer/songwriter Neil Sedaka (born in 1939) had a succession of Top 40 hits in the 1950s and 1960s. He had his first Top 10 hit in 1959 with "Oh! Carol" (resulting in Sedaka's first Grammy Award nomination), a tribute to former girlfriend Carole King, a fellow songwriter at the Brill Building. Other top songs include "Calendar Girl" (1961), "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do" (1962; a Grammy Award nominated number one song and his biggest hit), "Laughter in the Rain" (1974; another number one hit, this time on Elton John's Rocket label) and "Should've Never Let You Go" (1980; a single from his In the Pocket album). This fan letter from Marnie Covert proves the richness of his fame, and while a little schmaltzy Covert committed a lovely act of appreciation in writing. Two items.
