Happy Birthday, Judy! (video)

Today, the late, great Judy Garland would have been 88 years old. The singer died of an accidental drug overdose June 29, 1969. Her death set the tone for the Stonewall Riots that sparked the modern LGBT rights movement. 

Here is a rare performance by the mother of all divas from the 1943 radio show Command Performance, hosted by Bob Hope.
