Pink Martini Releases Diller Recording Of 'Smile'

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Music collective Pink Martini has released the last song that Phyllis Diller recorded, Charlie Chaplain's "Smile," as a fitting tribute to her memory.

The voice of the late comedian is immediately recognizable on the recording, perhaps a little more wizened, but still strong and full of emotion.

Diller died Monday in Los Angeles at age 95.

The song was recorded last February by Pink Martini bandleader Thomas Lauderdale for Pink Martini's next album.

It's available for listening on YouTube.
