Meryl Streep Won't Become a Singer
And a performance of songs from the Garrison Keilor film at Los Angeles' fabled music mecca last weekend made her realize she hasn't got what it takes to carry a tune as herself.
She says, "I have a real clear view of my ability, the size and shape and relative depth of my ability to be a singer. I have too much respect for the great singers to imagine that I could have an album. I could sing as the character. The other day I had to sing as myself and I just didn't know how to do it. I got nervous. I wasn't Yolanda, I was Meryl Streep and it was not like the movie. This was the Hollywood Bowl, 14,000 people and I wish they'd told me that when I said 'Yes'. It was terrifying."
Actress Lily Tomlin, who plays Streep's singing sister Rhonda in the film, was so nervous about singing, she took voice lessons.
