  1. What’s up mates, its a wonderful tribute to Mr. Hamlisch, and to have in the same room these three ladies, Barbra, Liza and Aretha. Wow! Rachele

  2. He will be truly missed, but his legacy and songs will be with us forever, what a genius!

    Does anyone know if this show was taped to be aired at a later date?
