‘The Sound of Music’ Live on NBC this Thursday night starring Carrie Underwood!
Susan and I discussed a very special live event ‘The Sound of Music‘ this morning on Q-106.5, and talked about the ‘haters’ that have been sending Carrie hate tweets on her performing a classic such as “The Sound of Music’. Well, it just happens that her biggest supporter is the lady that made this movie a classic, Julie Andrews!
This is what Andrews had to say about the live rendition and Carrie Underwood performing as ‘Maria von Trapp’ in ‘The Sound of Music…
“Fifty years later, it’s time somebody had another crack at it,” Andrews says. “I had the best time of my life doing it, and it did wonderful things for me. I think it’s great that it’s being done again, but doing it live must be so daunting for Carrie.
“I know they’re not doing the movie, though. They’re doing the Broadway show — that’s what they have the rights to — and I don’t know whether it will resonate similarly. In the movie, we cut some things from the stage version and added some songs.”
We hope you’ll watch Carrie Underwood and the entire staff in the live performance of ‘The Sound of Music’ this Thursday night at 8:00 on NBC!
