Liza Minnelli was born on March 12, 1946, in Los Angeles, California to the actress/singer Judy Garland and Vincente Minnelli, the

film director responsible for such classics as "Meet Me in St. Louis" and "An American in Paris." She began her career at a very

early age, appearing with her mother in the movie "In the Good Old Summertime" in 1949. By the time she was 19, she had

landed the lead role in the Broadway musical "Flora, the Red Menace," a performance that won her first Tony Award for Best

Actress in a Musical.

In 1972, having won acclaim for several film performance, her movie career peaked when she played Sally Bowles in "Cabaret."

The film won eight Oscars, including Best Actress for Minnelli. The role also earned her a Golden Globe and a British Film

Academy Award. Minnelli also starred in the first concert ever filmed live for television in 1972. The special, "Liza with a Z,"

produced a Top 20 album and won the Emmy for Outstanding Single Program.

Minnelli went on to appear opposite Robert DeNiro in the film musical "New York, New York," directed by Martin Scorsese, in

1977. In 1981, she co-starred with Dudley Moore in the movie "Arthur," going on to make the sequel "Arthur 2" in 1988. Minnelli

added a second Golden Globe to her already impressive list of awards in 1985 with her performance in "A Time to Live," a

made-for-TV movie.

In 2008, Minnelli returned to Broadway with "Liza's at the Palace ..." which went on to win the Tony Award for Best Special

Theatrical Event. She recreated the show at the MGM Grand where her performance was filmed for a public television special and

a DVD. The show's cast recording was nominated for a Grammy Award. Minnelli continues her extraordinary music career with

ongoing concert tours in the U.S. and Europe, as well as recording a new album.
