Music – 1979 – Judy Garland – Battle Hymn Of The Republic + Somewhere Over The Rainbow – Sung By Female Impersonator Craig Russell

Rich Little is a Canadian-American impressionist and voice actor…..who has been nicknamed “The Man of a Thousand Voices”…..and was extremely popular in the 1970’s and 1980’s…..during which time he hosted many hour long television specials….as well as special events covered by the networks….where Little would showcase many of the best impressionists and impersonators that were around at the time….. which is evidenced by this video seen herewith…..where female impersonator extraordinaire Craig Russell performs as Judy Garland while singing “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” in a nightclub act.

Craig Russell was so good at his trade….that he not only could sing like a woman….but he could also move like a woman….and as evidenced by this video….he had legs like a woman…..for any way you cut the pie….this video is great stuff…..and we are “tickled pink” to have this “nugget of gold” in our treasure chest of vintage memories here at ImaSportsphile.
