In this precious video, we see Julie Andrews being honored in a unique way. Julie Andrews sings “Do-Re-Mi” with the former Von Trapp children.
At the start of this clip, Julie Andrews is being honored for the 48th AFI Life Achievement Award. She is pleasantly surprised to see five of the actors who played her children in the Sound of Music be introduced on stage. As Nicholas honors Julie, he tells the audience that they are going to do a sing-a-long with Julie. The video begins to play the clip of “Do-Re-Mi,” and the audience starts singing along with Julie Andrews.
The former child actors walk through the audience singing as they make their way to Julie. The video plays the original clip from the scene in the movie. They arrive at the seat of their former “mother” from the movie, and all shake hands and sing together. Julie sings along, sharp as a whip. This memorable award will go down in the books for a woman of class and great character.
Julie Andrews reminds us of the impact that we have on others even if we have a short time with them. Clearly, all of the actors who played her children years ago adore her. This is a reminder to us that we never know the impact that we, too, make on people. Christ gives us the ability to love with His Holy Spirit. We can encourage those around us and motivate them through our words and actions. Do not give up on making a difference in your life. We each have a unique purpose in sharing the gospel with the world.
