The Master at Work….Billie Holiday, 1955


Its very interesting to listen to Liza sing Over The Rainbow at 13 years old. She had a beautiful, controlled voice, but it was a child’s voice. You listen to it and you can tell it’s a child singing.

Not her mother though. If you listen to Judy singing at 13, it’s like a grown woman singing. She didn’t have a child’s voice at all.

I don’t mean to compare them in a sense of saying that one was better than the other, but I find it interesting that it shows how much of a freak of nature Judy Garland was. She had that voice, that well developed instrument at 13, when she was just a child, even though she didn’t sound like one.

Couldn’t agree more. Judy had a very deep and gorgeously mature voice when she was in her teens! Normally girls who have deeper voices (alto - tenor) in adulthood grow into their full vocal range at about 17 or 18.    It’s - like you said - as if her vocal chords developed much quicker than the rest of her body. A remarkably rare but wonderful gift.

the fact that some tracks are banned on spotify but ONLY IN GERMANY makes me fuming mad
