Photo Coverage: Julie Budd & Herb Bernstein Celebrate 50 Years of Music Collaboration
Greatness is sometimes achieved by the collaboration of superbly talented people. Last night, in New York City it was the 50th anniversary of Julie Budd's association with pianist, arranger and musical director Herb Bernstein.
Herb discovered Julie Budd when she was 12 years old and ran with her to Merv Griffin, who immediately saw that same greatness and put her on his TV show. The rest is show business history. It happened 50 years ago and was celebrated at an event hosted by Richard Skipper at the Metropolitan Room.
You can still hear what this musical collaboration has produced on Sept 21st, as Julie lets forth with a breathtaking voice that has thrilled millions. When you attend a Julie Budd performance, you're going hear what you hear at a Streisand concert. Expect shout outs from the devoted fans, yelling, "We love you, Julie!"
