Judy Garland was an Academy Award-winning American vocalist and actress. As a child, she performed the Vaudeville circuit, and later was signed by film producer Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Garland is most famous for her role as Dorothy in the classic The Wizard of Oz (1939). It was in this role that Garland sang the beloved “Over the Rainbow,” one of the most popular songs in the American songbook. In 1997, she was posthumously awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
Linda Eder is an American vocalist and actress who grew up in Brainerd, Minnesota. As a vocalist, she has performed to sold-out audiences in venues across the nation, including Carnegie Hall. Eder’s concerts have been broadcasted on Bravo and PBS and she has nine solo albums, with a tenth in the works.
