Saturday Special: Watch Legend Liza Minnelli Celebrate Her 75th Birthday Singing Away with Grand Dame Joan Collins


Much has been made this week of Liza Minnelli’s 75th birthday. There’s a wonderful special tribute to her (co-produced by my old pal Scott Gorenstein) online, a fundraiser for the Actors Fund. Don’t miss it.

A lot of people said, ‘Oh Liza must not be well she’s not in the special.’ Nonsense. The great Joan Collins (Dame Joan, DBE) paid a visit to Liza on her birthday and posted this clip on Twitter. Liza never sounded better and Joan is in fine form! (She was married to the famed son gman Anthony Newley so she knows something about music!)

Is there a whole video of this with many songs? They could sell it on amazon for a lot of money. Happy Birthday, Liza!
