Renee Zellweger Records Duet With Sam Smith For ‘Judy’ Soundtrack

Renee Zellweger has recorded duets with Sam Smith and Rufus Wainwright for the soundtrack to the movie ‘Judy’, about Judy Garland.

Zellweger plays Garland in the biopic. Smith sings ‘Get Happy’ on the soundtrack. The song was originally from the 1950 movie ‘Summer Stock’.

Smith says, “When I was 17 years old I did a project on Judy Garland for my Film Studies A-Level. I was immediately immersed into the magic of Judy and her incredibly brave and triumphant story. She has remained as one of the icons of my life. She was one of the bravest humans out there and her vulnerability and honesty in her art still gives me goose bumps like it did the first time. It was truly an honour to sing with Renée. Nobody could have played Judy as well as Renée, and it is a career highlight for me to be singing with her, and in some small way, with Judy. I hope everyone loves the film as much as I did.”

Rufus Wainwright sings ‘Have Yourself A Very Merry Christmas’.

‘Judy’ will premiere on October 10.
