It is a must see, in my opinion, also Mary Poppins and Sound of Music.
|Sound of Music|
These three movies are the must see of all musical movies. Made my childhood and my families!!
My family being very musical we love to sing, and we love Bette Midler and Julie Andrews.
I've decided that Bette Midler and Julie Andrews deserve number 2, because to me they made songs fun to sing.
Even if they are a little before my time, I've grown up listening to my sisters (older by 8 and 6 years) and mums music. So I like to think of my self as well educated on music covering quite a few decades!

Little fact, Julie Andrews was going to star in the movie 'My Fair Lady' but the producers wishing to go with an actress more well known, Audrey Hepburn got the roll. So Julie Andrews lost out on 'My Fair Lady' but picked up the Mr Disney in Mary Poppins. Probably one of the best things to accidentally happen to Mrs Andrews as she beat Audrey Hepburn in the race for the Academy Award for best actress.
Sadly Mrs Andrews does not sing anymore, as a surgery to removes nodules in her vocal chords, a routine procedure most singers go through, but the surgery destroyed her vocal chords and she could not sing the way she used to anymore. A sad day for the music world!
This video isn't the best, but it's one of my favourite songs, and love Julie Andrews high finish to the song!

Also Mrs Midler's song, 'Wind Beneath my Wings' was played at my Grandmothers funeral, so it will always be in my memory in connection with my grandma.
