Billboard Magazine reports:
Barbra Streisand took to Twitter today to pay tribute to her iconic “Happy Days Are Here Again” and “Get Happy” duet with Judy Garland back in 1963. “Such a special moment in my career,” Streisand wrote. “She was incredible. Totally unique. Just been reminded this aired 56 years ago today on CBS.”
The collaboration between the two stars took place during episode 9 of The Judy Garland Show, which was taped on Oct. 4, 1963, and then broadcast by CBS two days later.
The one-of-a-kind performance, which at the time featured Streisand as a young rising star who had just released her first album, was a perfect mix of the two hit songs, allowing for each singer’s showstopping vocals to be put on display.
