Ethel Waters..."I know I'm somebody 'cause God don't make no junk." [Probably one of my favorite statements of all time and one that I carry with me always.]

Ethel Waters sings Am I Blue from the 1929 motion picture "On With the Show". This was the first sound movie filmed in color-unfortunately, only black and white copies survive. Also co-starring with Waters in this film are Betty Compson, Arthur Lake and Joe E. Brown. In the second half of the clip, Ms.Waters is accompanied by The Four Emperors of Harmony. The song would become her signature.
