When I was younger son's age, I wanted to be Bernadette Peters when I grew up. She's a wonderful actress, has a lovely voice, is beautiful, and, important for me at the time, she has blond hair that is curly!
Does anybody else remember her in a short-lived TV show, All's Fair?
There are so many wonderful performances of hers on YouTube. Here, she's singing, "We're in the Money" and "Pennies from Heaven:"
Oh, and did I mention exuberance?!
