Julie Andrews sings along to ‘Sound of Music’ tribute

Julie Andrews is an English actress with a fantastic voice. Her singing talents have included such films as Mary Poppins (1964) and The Sound of Music (1965). She also worked alongside Carol Burnett for many TV specials.

Andrews recently appeared at a ceremony honoring her legacy. She received a special visit from some younger co-stars.

Her co-stars included Angela Cartwright, Kym Karath, Debbie Turner, Duane Chase, and Nicholas Hammond. They played the Von Trapp children in The Sound of Music.

The Von Trapp actors took to the stage to celebrate her life. Nicholas Hammond spoke highly of how Andrews sang some of the most iconic music.

The speech then led into a sing-along of one of the most classic songs from her most classic movies. Hammond made it known by reciting the lines, “Let’s start at the beginning, a very good place to start.”

The monitor behind them begins the scene from The Sound of Music where Julie Andrews starts singing while playing the guitar. As she sings, the subtitles appear, inviting the audience to sing along.

As the song continues, the actors start making their way through the audience, encouraging everybody to sing along. The whole room starts singing the lyrics of the familiar melody.

When the song nears its final passages, the actors arrive next to Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett, already singing along. Together, they lend their voices to the charming melody they sang many decades ago.

Rousing applause follows as Andrews is given appreciative thank yous and air-kisses from her co-stars.

Robert Wise directed the Sound of Music in 1965. The music was composed by Richard Rodgers with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein. The film would win five Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director.
