Los Angeles - Diana Krall knows how to pay tribute to Neil Armstrong.
The jazz singer-pianist tenderly played the standard Fly Me to the Moon during a Saturday concert at the Hollywood Bowl.
She once was lucky enough to share a glass of wine with the first man to walk on the moon, Krall said. The astronaut died on Saturday at 82.
"He's probably thinking, 'Do I have to listen to that song again?'" Krall said lightly, after gazing up at the night sky from the stage of the outdoor amphitheatre.
The musician, who sent her love out to Armstrong's family, also had a message for her husband, Elvis Costello.
She performed the classic tune I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face, changing the lyric to "his face," then said she sang it with Costello in mind on his birthday.
The rock musician turned 58 on Saturday.
"Happy birthday, EC," Krall said later as she closed the concert with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, conducted by jazz man Alan Broadbent.
