March 12th: Happy Birthday Liza Minelli! 🎁
On March 12th, Broadway superstar Liza Minelli turned 74 years ageless. Liza is the daughter of legend Judy Garland and director Vincente Minelli. But of course, Liza went on to become a legend herself. Check out this performance to understand why.
Did you know that John Kander (of Kander and Ebb fame) had a lot to do with the type of performer Liza became? He coached her on singing choices and wardrobe choices, and helped create her most iconic looks and choices.
Here are four songs of hers that I think every singer should check out:
My Own Space - The Act *a simple, lovely ballad*
Shine It On - The Act *a showstopper!*
Ring Them Bells *a tour de force for a comedic talent*
It's A Quiet Thing - Flora The Red Menace *a life truth captured in song*
