Not only that, Barnum offered to put salaries on deposit up-front, which required him to either sell or mortgage everything he owned. It was a huge bet, without a safety net. But to Barnum, the chance to establish himself as an American tastemaker was worth the risk.
The public-relations blitz, which included constant newspaper coverage, a song contest, and competitive ticket auctions, worked a treat: from her first show on September 11, , at the Castle Garden in New York, Jenny Lind was a sensation. She is the greatest singer we have ever heard.
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
Her Greatest Showman portrayal notwithstanding, Lind was not the red-lipstick type. She made grown men cry solely through the purity of her voice, and impressed Americans particularly with her lack of pretension, donating thousands of dollars to local charities along her tour itinerary. The New York Fire Department was so enchanted with Lind and her generous bequests that they presented her with a gold box with the department insignia as a token. Crowds loved that Jenny Lind did not seem to be performing a fiction so much as telegraphing herself, truly, in all her innocence and grace.
And while this arrangement was good for their respective bank accounts, neither Lind nor Barnum was interested in mixing business with pleasure. Andersen, stung by rejection, pined for Lind in his story The Nightingale, in which a grand emperor is enthralled with a jeweled automaton in the shape of a bird—but can only be saved from death by the singing of a plain brown nightingale. At his mansion, Iranistan, Barnum kept a pet cow who liked to graze below his office window. The interaction did not improve from there. Barnum, hearing the ruckus, leaned from his window and from his vantage point could see the agitated cow but not Lind.
