Description (Brief)
This sheet music for "Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup," was originally written by Anna Sosenko and published by Chappell & Company in New York. This song became Hildegarde’s trademark tune, and enjoyed popularity both in the United States and in Europe, especially among Allied servicemen during World War II. Known for her coquettish nature, Hildegarde was one of the most popular club singers in the 1930’s and 1940’s, even appearing on the cover of Time. This cover features a full length photo of Hildegarde on a pink background.
