Liza Minnelli

The daughter of legendary singer Judy Garland and film director Vincent Minnelli, Liza Minnelli was born to be a star. She made her screen debut at the age of three with her mother in the musical In The Good Old Summertime in 1949 and launched her own professional career in 1963 at 17. She sang with her mother on stage at London Palladium a year later and became a popular night club singer in Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York. Minelli began her recording career with Liza! Liza! for Capitol Records in 1964, and followed it with other albums of pop standards and show tunes. Around the same time, she began acting in movies such as Charlie Bubbles (1967) and The Sterile Cuckoo (1969) but the role that defined her was playing Sally Bowles in Cabaret (1972). She also appeared opposite Robert De Niro in New York, New York (1977), which produced the famous signature song that later became closely associated with Frank Sinatra. She also appeared regularly on TV, in Broadway shows and had more hit movies with Arthur (1981) and Stepping Out (1991). Minelli experimented musically, too, collaborating with the Pet Shop Boys on their electro dance album Results, including the hit single Losing My Mind. In 1996 she recorded Gently, an album of jazz standards and duetted with Donna Summer on Does He Love You? She also performed with My Chemical Romance on their 2006 album The Black Parade and in 2010 released a new album Confessions.
