The wonderful Judy Garland was born Frances Ethel Gumm 93 years ago today in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. From that humble beginning, she went on to an amazing career that few others have matched.
A friend once asked us, “Why is it that you’re so fond of Judy Garland, but you’re not so crazy about Barbra Streisand?”
That’s an easy one for us: With Ms. Streisand (with all due respect), it’s all about her pipes. With Ms. Garland, it’s all about her heart.
Happy birthday, Frances Ethel, and thanks for giving your all.
