Julie Andrews will not only ride in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, she’ll also be singing. Or at least lip synching to the loud speakers amplifying her to the millions of viewers — live and televised.
She’ll be aboard the new Story Book float boasting the super-charming book, “The Great American Mousical” written by Julie and daughter Emma Walton Hamilton. The song is “The Show Must Go On” written by Julie, Emma, Inda Eaton and Annamarie McCoy with orchestration by Ian Fraser. A CD will be sold at Julie’s book-signing Nov.26 at Macy’s.
It’s the first time Julie’s sung (only seven notes), since her throat surgery nine years ago. (Well, it’s the second time. She toasted my column’s 50th anniversary, April 23, 2002 at the Beverly Hilton, singing, “I’ve Grown Accustomed to His SPACE”).
