Who could ever think of the songs "New York, New York," "Cabaret" or "Ring Them Bells" without hearing the voice of Liza Minnelli giving them the full-throttle treatment?

March 12 marks Minnelli's 67th birthday, and has collected some of our favorite moments from the unstoppable entertainer's career.

Minnelli is a two-time Tony Award winner for her work in Flora, the Red Menace and The Act. She is also the recipient of a 1974 Special Tony Award and was nominated for her performance in The Rink. Visit her page at the Playbill Vault
