On May 19, 1962, Marilyn sang "Happy Birthday" and a reworked version of "Thanks for the Memory" at John F. Kennedy's 45th birthday gala (the event was also a fundraiser for the democratic party). The gala took place in New York City at Madison Square Garden and more than 15,000 people attended. Marilyn personally attended the event with her ex father-in-law, Isadore Miller, and her publicist, Pat Newcomb.
The performance of Marilyn's that night is one of the most iconic and memorable not only for how she dazzled the crowd with her singing, but also with her sheer dress that had rhinestones sewn on throughout the dress. Overall, that night Marilyn will forever be remembered for her perfectly mesmerizing performance and a dress that was almost as beautiful as she.
