Wedding Singer - Rapping Granny

Ellen Albertini Dow, the HIGHlarious, adorable rapping granny from Adam Sandler's hit comedy, The Wedding Singer passed away last night. She lived a long life to the age of 101!

Dow had quite the ride though! Not only did she study acting, but she also worked with famous mimes, Marcel Marceau and Jacques LeCog in Paris and was part of a comedy act that toured the Catskills!

Ellen, along with her husband Eugene Dow, later settled down out West where she taught in the theater department at Los Angeles City College. Mr. and Mrs. Dow didn't stop there though, as they took their efforts to Pierce College where her husband started the drama department. Albertini Dow finally retired from teaching in 1985, but the spunky little woman wasn't done yet!

This is when she really got the ball rolling and we all got to see her talents on-screen! She decided to start studying acting at the American Film Institute and soon landed roles in

Elton John Is The Best Wedding Singer Ever!

Mostly because Elton John is one of the best singers ever. Therefore, if he's singing at weddings, that automatically puts him in the running for best wedding singer ever too.

Following our logic?

Anywho, the 65-year-old has made not one, but THREE couples' dreams come true in the last two months by performing at their wedding.

On top of playing for a Canadian couple in August after the groom made a giant donation to his AIDS Foundation, Elton was in El Lay over the weekend for two more ceremonies.

What a great wedding present!

Eric Clapton not only walked his daughter Ruth down the aisle at her wedding in St. Mary Magdalen Church in Ripley, England, but he was also hired to perform as her wedding singer at her reception.

A guest at the wedding says Eric performed for about an hour at the ceremony this past Saturday and was even joined by his daughter for a duet, which they performed in front of 150 of her guests.

The guest added:

Ruth sang Use Somebody, by the Kings of Leon, as her special surprise for Dean, with Clapton backing her. She's got a good voice and has sung with her father before.

It was a delightful family wedding and with Clapton playing at the reception, you couldn't have found a better wedding singer anywhere in the world."

So cool! We wish we could have been there to see that! And what a sweet dad to perform at his daughter's wedding. It seems like they have a wonderful relationship.

Ellie Goulding Is Set To Perform At The Royal Wedding!

ellie-goulding-to-perform-at-royal-wedding

We couldn't think of a better choice for their wedding singer!

Ellie Goulding has been reportedly tapped personally by Prince William and Kate Middleton to perform at tomorrow's Royal Wedding, and will be performing not only some of the AMAZING songs off of her debut album, Lights, but also some classic wedding reception classics for the older crowd attending!

A source said:

"Will and Kate are huge fans of Ellie and were keen to sign her up. Her music goes down well with the young ones, plus a few of the older guests will be nodding their heads along. They really wanted a top British talent and the couple are delighted Ellie agreed to perform. She can't wait - although she's a tad nervous."

Understandable, but you have nothing worry about, gurl - especially with your amount of talent!

Here's hoping she does her cover of Your Song! That's one of our FAVES!

Congratulations on such a distinct honor! You're going to KILL IT!

P.S. Be sure to watch Perez as he hosts with Nene Leakes "Will + Kate Forever," the only royal wedding special worth seeing, airing Friday, April 29th at 7pm/6c on Wedding Central and also at 9pm/8c on WE tv.
