Julie Andrews Singing At Age Twelve & Fifteen

Friday, December 26, 2008 • 8:07 am

Those of us who grow up watching the adult versions of prodigious talent tend to forget—or never have seen—the prodigiously talented child.  Greg posted Charlotte Church’s beautiful singing earlier this week.  Here are a few flashbacks to Julie Andrews and her singing.  We’re lucky to have this sort of footage.

After the anthem there is some footage on stage, and then some later footage and interviews [very hard to hear] regarding a play in which she is performing in her late teens or twenties.

Here she is at 15, singing the Blue Danube:

But the most amazing, to me, is what she is capable of pulling off here at 12:

The cool thing about Julie Andrews, other than her voice, is that she was able to pull it off within a “common” setting, and cross-over into movies and acting.  All of it made up an incredible package.

Rumour has it she is singing again? Does anyone have any confirmation of this? Her loss of song after that botched operation was a tragedy. She had a five octave range and hit the highest note ever.

I have one o’ them thar blogs.
