MUSIC legend Liza Minnelli gave a moving performance this weekend after visiting the UK’s first holocaust centre.
The 65-year-old appeared at the White Rose charity ball on Sunday in front of guests including actors EmIlia Fox, Dougray Scott, Tara Fitzgerald, Maureen Lipman and singer Will Young.
During her hour-long midnight performance Liza swigged soft drinks and talked of her experience at the Holocaust Centre in Nottinghamshire where she met a holocaust survivor and schoolchildren: “When they took me up to the Holocaust Centre, I thought it was just going to be dreadful and depressing.
“But children are being told what happened and little by little they hear the journey of a survivor – it helps teach the children and helps him, too.”
The ball at the Park Plaza Hotel in central London raised £100,000 from the sale of tickets and auction items.
We hear hotel staff were in a tizz as Liza enjoyed a cigarette or three three on the premises.
