Betty Buckley

6. "Memory" (Betty Buckley)

If Betty Buckley didn't get "Memory" all to herself, having to follow West End Grizabella Elaine Paige and superstar recording artist Barbra Streisand into the tune, she's managed to make impressive headway putting her own stamp on it. More thrilling and storytelling than her predecessors, Betty's version is both otherwordly and visceral and continues to thrill audiences more than three decades later.
