Among her many accomplishments are the 2011 Grammy Award for best speech album, recording of her book If you ask me (And of course you won’t). And Guinness Book of World Records in 2013 said she held the record for longest television career for a (female) artist. But America’s sweetheart has also shared her singing (and rapping!) talents with the world throughout the years. We’ve rounded up six of her best musical moments below.
1. “Getting to Know You”
White wowed audiences in her home country early in her career, appearing on a number of notable TV shows during the 50s and 60s. In this clip, she sings a tune from a musical. King and I and it’s easy to see why America loves her.
2. “42nd Street”
Years ago when they worked together Golden girls, Betty White and Bea Arthur “heard the rhythm of dancing feet” and mingled with a captivating song and televised “tap dance” number.
3. “With ‘No’ Sounds Like ‘Yes’”
White and best friend Jimmy Boyd (among “I saw my mother kissing Santa Claus”Famous) collaborated on a song (originally recorded by Rod McKuen) above The Betty White Show. Following up on the duet, White closed the episode with a lovely farewell song, “It’s time to say it long.”
“Miami, you’ve got style.” White (as Rose Nylund) sings “Miami” with the rest of the Golden girls (Dorothy, Sophia and Blanche). We still can’t get over the fact that the girls came in second with their fascinating tribute to the “magic city”. Plus, the upbeat tempo allows Sophia to dance along.
5. “It was a good day”
White signal up The Betty White Show band and explained “this is how we feel today.” Seriously, “Today is a good day to sing a song, how could it go wrong?”
6. “I’m Still Hot”
