IT’S A JULIE ANDREW KIND OF DAY!   Leave a comment

Since the age of 13 when she made her debut on the London stage with the critics raving about her 4 octave clear as a bell voice Julie Andrews has been a star. From her Broadway debut in “The Boyfriend” at 19 in 1954 to her touring Australia and New Zealand for the first time at the age of 77 in 2013 she has always been in the spotlight mostly for good events but also for the heartbreak of losing her singing voice in an operation.

The list of her ‘hits’ from “My Fair Lady” on stage to “Cinderella” on television to concerts with Carol Bennett and Beverly Sills, Andrews has brought a lot of joy to all. She was in 4 big stage hits, over 32 films including her big hit debut in “Mary Poppins” some 29 television shows bringing her over 60 awards and recognitions such as being made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II and receiving Kennedy Honors along with writing 20+ children books many with her daughter Emma.

This year she was thrown into the spotlight again with the 50th anniversary of her starring role in film “The Sound of Music” plus Lady Gaga saluting the film and her stunning the Oscar audience with a medley of songs from the show and Andrews coming out and getting a standing ovation.

Highlights of her singing many songs from her Broadway, television and movie appearances will make her beautiful voice available forever!
