Judge Judy Sheindlin is now on IMDb TV. After 25 years of filming her show, Judge Judy, she has now moved on to another show which is called Judy Justice. This time, she has a very special co-star: her granddaughter Sarah Rose. Sarah wrote a very touching letter about her grandma called “Nana” which was first published by Good Housekeeping.

Sarah is her law clerk on the show and Judy introduced her in the trailer. Judy shared, “My law clerk happens to be my granddaughter. Sarah is wired like I am. She’s a little snarky. I like that.” It seems that she learned a lot from her grandma both personally and professionally!

In the letter, she wrote, “Throughout my life, your support and guidance have made me feel confident and secure in a way that’s allowed me to take risks and enjoy life in a way very few have the chance to experience. Throughout your life and your multiple successful careers, you have created a strong safety net for our entire family. This is one of the best gifts you could have given any of us. It has allowed us to go out in the world and venture down our respective paths knowing that you would always be there to support us or pick us up and dust us off if it didn’t go our way.”

She continued, “That is one part of our life together that I wish the public got to see: the pure joy you get when the whole family comes together and shares life experiences and stories that have been made possible by your hard work and dedication.”

Sarah added, “I love you more and more each day and cannot wait for the future lessons we’ll get to share. You are the light of my life, and I love and respect you more than you know. With your advice and direction, I have all the tools I need to be a strong, independent woman. I am so lucky to have you as my biggest cheerleader and supporter — and very best friend.” Read her entire letter here.

Linda Thompson Feels Elvis Could Come Back, What He Would Say About His Legacy

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

There have been theories that Elvis Presley has been alive this whole time, but former girlfriend Linda Thompson feels if anyone could come back, it would be the King. And if he did, to find a world still analyzing his life and work, Thompson feels she knows how he would react.

Thompson sat down for a talk with Sheri Lacker, daughter of Memphis Mafia member Marty Lacker, and who runs a YouTube channel named after the famous group of friends and colleagues. In the 15-minute video, Thompson discusses Elvis’s spirit and just how attuned to him she still feels, enough so to gauge how he might do or fare today.

“If anybody could maintain their energy,” Thompson expressed, “It wouldn’t be Houdini who could come back, it would be Elvis.” Time notes that theorists who don’t believe Elvis died at all either feel he faked his death to go into hiding or that they definitely saw him walking around the other day; one dedicated author points to an FBI-led witness protection program. But Thompson is citing the sheer spirit and presence of a man she knows passed but lives on so strongly in his legacy.

“You couldn’t be around Elvis Presley and not love him. You couldn’t be around him and not recognise the magnanimous person he was,” Thompson explained. “The huge presence that he was, the winsome personality that he had.”

And what would he feel to see how things are today?

Though he rose to fame in the 1950s and died in 1977, Elvis Presley remains a pop culture icon who is still celebrated to this day. Performing arts centers host the event Elvis: The Concert of Kings to “bring to life the music and charisma of Elvis Presley, from the electrifying early years of the 1950s, to the stunning sex-symbol era of the 1960s.” If Elvis were to come back, or even to just know the reception his work still receives, how would he react? Linda Thompson has some ideas.

“If there is any chance he is up there looking down on us, I know he is so honoured and so humbled and so grateful, so appreciative for your loyalty and love and devotion for keeping his memory and his legacy and music alive,” Thompson believes. “I just wanna thank you all for that. It is an amazing thing to see after all these years and I know he would be awestruck by it.”

‘The Waltons’ Star Jon Walmsley Paid Tribute To Country Music Icon Merle Haggard

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Among the many factors that drew viewers to watch The Waltons were the diverse talents among the characters. Mary Ellen became a nurse, Jim-Bob showed his mechanical savvy, and John-Boy is the passionate writer. Jason’s musical inclinations mirrored those of his actor, Jon Walmsley, who used his talents to honor country artist Merle Haggard back in 2017, a year after the singer’s passing.

Throughout nine seasons of The Waltons, viewers got to hear Walmsley’s actual musical talents whenever he performed. All the while, Walmsley continued to cultivate his skill and career as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

Jon Walmsley honors the late Merle Haggard

2017 marked the 45th anniversary of The Waltons, celebrating its original release, which occurred on September 14, 1972. Key members of the show enjoyed a Waltons-themed weekend to mark the occasion, and in celebration, Walmsley performed for his former colleagues as well as loyal fans in celebration.

For his tribute to Haggard, Walmsley played “Workin’ Man Blues,” something of an original “9 to 5” tribute to those deep in the hustle to keep themselves and their families afloat each day. While the message itself is still universal today as it was in 1969, Walmsley got to enjoy a personal connection with Haggard after a fateful meeting – through The Waltons no less.

Haggard’s youth was marked by hardship, especially after his father died and Haggard fell into trouble enough he ended up incarcerated. By 1960, after release, he vowed to turn over a new leaf, and so began his journey to country music stardom. By the time The Waltons was just starting, Haggard had “Okie From Muskogee,” “The Fightin’ Side of Me,” and “Irma Jackson” released, and was considered one of the most famous country singers in the world – even as Haggard himself oscillated between just what kind of message he wanted to send with his music. So, when season five of The Waltons rolled around in 1976, Haggard offered major star power as a guest.

On October 7 of that year, Jon Walmsley got to meet and work with Merle Haggard when the singer appeared as Red Turner in the series. “I was thrilled to have him come on the show as a guest star, and even more so that the main plot of the show was the relationship between our two characters,” Walmsley reflected. “We spent a lot of time together during that six or seven days away from the camera. We did a lot of playing guitar on the set between takes. In fact, the assistant director had to tell us to shut up because they couldn’t concentrate on their work.”

Breaking: Broadway Musical Icon Stephen Sondheim Dies At 91

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

  • Longtime Broadway composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim is dead at age 91.
  • No cause of death has been disclosed.
  • He was in the middle of producing new works. 

 

Broadway musical icon and craftsman, Stephen Sondheim, has died at age 91. His career spanned more than 60 years, co-creating a number of famous shows such as West Side Story, Sweeney Todd, and Into the Woods.

Sondheim was known for not only creating dazzling music, but also for raising the bar in Broadway. Prior to Sondheim, Broadway was considered comforting and family-friendly, which changed when shows such as Sweeney Todd and Company came out. These shows explored the complexity of murderous barbers to adult relationships.

Remembering a musical great, Stephen Sondheim

Sondheim was greatly influenced by another musical great, Oscar Hammerstein of the duo Rogers & Hammerstein. Sondheim claimed that Hammerstein taught him that in writing lyrics “the whole point is to underwrite not overwrite because music is so rich an art itself.” He was just 27 years old when he had his first big musical hit with West Side Story, creating a number of hit songs like “America” and “Somewhere.”

Famed producer Cameron Mackintosh issued a statement following the news of Sondheim’s death. He said, “The theatre has lost one of its greatest geniuses and the world has lost one of its greatest and most original writers. Sadly, there is now a giant in the sky. But the brilliance of Stephen Sondheim will still be here as his legendary songs and shows will be performed for evermore. Goodbye old friend and thank you from all of us.”

As of a few months ago, Sondheim was still in the process of writing new works. Some of his best-known works as a composer and lyricists include A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1962), Company (1970), Follies (1971), A Little Night Music (1973), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (1979), Sunday in the Park with George (1984), among many more. Rest in peace.

“How blessed were we all to have Lisa share her immense talent with us for decades,” says her co-star Martha Brynne, who played Brown’s daughter on Guiding Light. “She was my friend since I was 15 years old from the day Doug Marland introduced me to my ‘mother.’ Lisa was my mentor, mother, sister, and so much more for my entire life. As a scene partner, she was always present and full of creativity. As a writer and director, her instincts were second to none. For the fans, she loved and respected you all more than you will ever know. We are devastated at the loss of an incredible woman.”
