It’s the worldwide celebration of the 100th Birthday of one of the Greatest Performers of our time, starring overnight internet sensation Debbie Wileman in an uncanny recreation of the sound of Judy Garland. Wileman has gained over 1 million online views for her spot-on recreation of Judy Garland and she is now, direct from London, onstage to dazzle Judy’s fans as well as her new followers. Fresh off her newest album release, “I’m Still Here” orchestrated, conducted & produced by Steve Orich.
The Scott Stander Group is thrilled to release a new video of acclaimed vocalist Debbie Wileman at the fabled MGM Studios (renamed The Barbra Streisand Scoring Stage) singing “Over the Rainbow” sung by Judy Garland on the same stage 84 years ago – Garland’s signature song which made one of Hollywood’s most enduring icons a global star at age 17.
Debbie Wileman said of her experience; “It was honestly a dream come true and so inspiring to be in that room where so much history has been made. Not only all the recordings for The Wizard of Oz, but all my favorite MGM musicals, too.”
She continued, “You could feel the electricity in the air and a lot of the original features of the room are still there – including cigarette burns on the 1930’s music stands. It was an honor to be there.”
The recording will be included in Wileman’s new album, I’m Still Here, to be released on June 10, 2022, as a tribute to Judy Garland’s 100th birthday, and will be available on streaming and digital platforms worldwide. The album was orchestrated, conducted, & produced by Steve Orich, orchestrator of the Grammy Award Winning album, Jersey Boys.

“Beauty and the Beast”
“If He Walked Into My Life”
