LOS ANGELES (AP) - Diana Krall knows how to pay tribute to Neil Armstrong.
The jazz singer-pianist tenderly played "Fly Me to the Moon" during a Saturday night concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
Krall said she once was lucky enough to share a glass of wine with the first man to walk on the moon. The astronaut died Saturday at 82.
Armstrong probably was wishing he didn't have to listen to the pop standard again, Krall said lightly, after gazing toward the night sky.
Neil Armstrong's family says the first man to walk on the moon in 1969 was "a reluctant American hero who always believed he was just doing his job."
Armstrong, who had bypass surgery earlier this month, died from what his family said were complications of heart procedures.
