HBD, Judy Garland! The Icon’s Top 5 Moments on YouTube

Judy Garland in Vincente Minnelli’s Meet Me in St. Louis

June 10th marks what would have been the 93rd birthday of singer, actor and icon Judy Garland. With the anniversary of her death (and its ostensible sparking of the modern Gay Rights movement) a few weeks away, June is a prolific month to celebrate the troubled star and appreciate her ongoing influence on entertainment. With a recent screening of The Wizard of Oz in MoMA’s ‘Glorious Technicolor‘ series and the magic that is the internet, Judy Garland still vibrantly lives on long after her death.

BlackBook amassed five of her most famous performances via YouTube, from feature films to live concerts, to celebrate the immensely talented icon.
