This image records the historic and poignant moment when Monroe sang 'Happy Birthday' to President Kennedy during a grand party in Madison Square Garden on May 19, 1962, celebrating his forty-fifth birthday. Because of her slight tardiness in coming on stage she was introduced, by Peter Lawford, as '...the late Marilyn Monroe'. Just a few months later she was dead.
