Over The Rainbow: Celebrate The Music Of Judy Garland
March 10, 2023
The City of Aventura presents Over The Rainbow: Becky O'Brien Celebrates the Music of Judy Garland on Friday, March 31st, 2023 at 8:00 p.m. O'Brien has met with great critical acclaim from her many performances at the London Palladium, as a finalist on Britain's Got Talent and with a hugely successful Off Broadway run of A Garland For Judy. Simon Cowell was left choked up on Britain’s Got Talent after Becky O'Brien's emotional performance.
"Wow. I was not expecting that. Your voice is so beautiful, so authentic, it was just so emotional. This is why we love making this show, is to find people like you. That was your moment and you took it and it was fantastic. Thank God Jack said to you last year, 'Come and audition for Britain's Got Talent'." Simon Cowell
The music mogul looked visibly moved after the mother of five performed an incredibly emotional rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
Broadway World reported, "The audience was awed. Each note that came from her tiny frame soared. O'Brien exuded in her words a trait she shares with her inspiration for the show, Garland… a glass half full optimism."
People say O’Brien was born 50 years too late as she transports audiences to an era long forgotten. She first gained fame as a finalist on Britain's Got Talent causing host Simon Cowell to exclaim, “The reason we do this show is to find people like you, that was your moment and you took it!”
To celebrate what would have been the week of Garland’s 100th birthday last June, O’Brien starred in Over the Rainbow at the Hippodrome Casino in London and was the British ambassador for Judy – A Garland Fragrance by Vincenzo Spinnato created closely with the Garland Family and The Garland Heirs Trust.
Songs that will be featured during the performance include: I Got Rhythm, The Man That Got Away, Get Happy and – naturally – Over the Rainbow.
