Man Behind ‘Oprah,’ ‘Dr. Phil’ Remembered At Star-Studded Memorial Service

A who’s who of Hollywood, music and politics gathered last night at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles to celebrate the life of Michael King, the much-beloved syndication king behind wildly successful shows like Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Roseanne and Dr. Phil. King passed away suddenly March 27 at age 67 from complications of pneumonia.

Former President Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Norman Lear, Elton John, Whoopi Goldberg and Sugar Ray Leonard, among others, remembered King as an “intellectual” but “street-smart” businessman, a generous philanthropist and exceptionally kind and devoted friend, brother, husband, father and uncle. Kenny G, Michael Bolton and David Foster performed at the invitation-only event, held by King’s wife, Jena and children Ali, Audrey, Teddy and Jesse.

As Clinton remarked later in the program, referencing a poem by William Wordsworth, King’s “last best hope of his great good life were the unforgettable acts of kindness, love and laughter. We are all here because we basked in his embrace.”

White floral arrangements and candles in tall glass votives set a peaceful scene as bagpipes welcomed 400-plus guests, including Bobby Kennedy Jr., Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin, Don Henley and Joe Walsh from The Eagles, Netflix’s Ted Sarandos, producer Lawrence Bender and acrots Tommy Chong, Paul Reiser and Lorraine Bracco.

A bagpipe rendition of “Amazing Grace” marked the start of the service, after which Monsignor Lloyd Torgerson from St. Monica’s Church in Santa Monica, California led those gathered in prayer.

King’s children then came on stage, the oldest three giving emotional, at times tearful, speeches about their love for their dad — and his love for them. Eldest daughter and singer Ali said King was “the funniest person I know.” Son Teddy, a student at the University of Southern California, called his father his “best friend.” Teenage daughter Audrey welcomed guests and spoke on behalf of her mother, who was seated in the audience, then read two searing poems she wrote herself, leaving many attendees in tears.

In one, titled “Poem For My Mom,” she wrote:

A love so intangible, is that much
More alluring-
That much more passionate.
When you feel the cold wind
Just know it is him kissing your neck,
Teasing your senses,
Reminding you
He loves you.

Teddy introduced the former president with an anecdote of a trip he took with his dad and Clinton to South Africa, where the trio had gone to do charity work and visit Nelson Mandela. A known jokester, King impersonated Clinton, who had fallen asleep in the jeep. The account elicited laughs from the audience.

“Teddy, thanks for that wonderful story, I would far rather be impersonated by your father than anyone I can think of,” Clinton began, to laughter. “I will say this: We have this vast King clan here, and we had the bagpipers playing, and I thought, ‘It is so Michael King, ending with a flourish, an invasion of the Skirball Center by the Irish Catholics.'”

Clinton continued on a serious note, referencing the Charleston shooting on June 18.

“Everywhere in the world is bedeviled by people who are the opposite of Michael King. People who think all that matters is our differences,” Clinton said. “We have more refugees than any time since World War II. It was a terrible, terrible thing that happened in South Carolina yesterday. Michael King is the polar opposite of all that.”

Robert, King’s brother and partner in King World Productions, followed the former president’s remarks, saying his younger brother “would not want us to mourn his death; he’d want us to celebrate.” Older brother Richie offered a few, heartbroken words about the loss of a national treasure, his business partner and his best friend of 67 years. “That’s all I can say,” he said, choking back tears.

Kenny G performed, dedicating his song, “Innocence,” to the family. And tributes, tears and laughter continued.

Collaborator and producer Jeff Wald joked, “I was worried about going on after President Clinton — then I realized I couldn’t do worse than George Bush.”

Producer Norman Lear panned, “There are people all over this town who would die to put a crowd like this together.” Confessing that he had thought King was Jewish throughout their 30-year friendship until just before the memorial service, Lear said, “Jewish. Irish. It doesn’t matter. Michael was the definition of the word ‘mensch.'”

The speeches were interspersed by video tributes from those unable to attend, including Elton John, Whoopi Goldberg and Sugar Ray Leonard. In hers, Oprah Winfrey offered her condolences and shared photos and memories of King. “Here was a man who really knew how to live. He didn’t just live big — he lived huge,” she said.

Major philanthropists to many causes, King and his wife donated to friend, lawyer and speaker Robert Shapiro’s foundation to combat drug addiction, and to Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen’s Oceana foundation, the largest ocean-conservation charity in the world.

“I really felt Michael got to experience the joy of what it means to be human,” Danson said. “He got to love and be loved.”

The event concluded with musical performances by Michael Bolton and producer David Foster, who sent the crowd off on a buoyant note: “Let’s do this right. Everybody get up, scream, shout, and stomp your feet so wherever he is, he can hear us right now.”

Judy Garland: The Joy and the Genius Remembered and Remastered

Judy Garland would have turned 93 earlier this month on June 10th, and we are quickly approaching the 46th anniversary of her untimely passing on June 22nd. Proof that a legend never dies, two new works have emerged celebrating her 47 years on this earth, and the rich legacy she has left behind.

Many claim to have known the “real” Judy Garland, and/or claim to have tried to have save and help her. How refreshing it is to happen along someone who actually did know Miss Garland, sans such gross exaggerations. Someone who had the great privilege of being in her company on several occasions. Including her famed London recording sessions, the filming of her final movie and working under the same roof at CBS at the same time. That someone is Joan Beck Coulson, who has authored Always for Judy, Witness to the Joy and Genius of Judy Garland. Just like Glinda, the Good; Joan Beck Coulson floats in, in her (figurative) pink bubble and delivers a refreshing book celebrating Garland’s life.

2015-06-19-1434738640-8169846-AlwaysJudy.jpg

Can you imagine being invited to attend a recording session by the “world’s greatest entertainer’ (an apt sobriquet attributed to Tony Bennett about Judy)? You arrive at the studio to find that 4’11” power house bearing a warm smile and as she guides you down the corridor she turns and says:

“I don’t know why you want to watch this-It will be so boring!”, Garland said. As if! Miss Coulson’s recollection: “We were in Seventh Heaven!”

On watching Garland in action at the recording studio Miss Coulson reflects:

“There was no diva there, it was a collaboration of artists working together to produce a piece of art.”

Along with her personal reminiscences, Coulson’s book, uses the psychological approach of “7 Up” to explain Garland’s life. “7 Up” is a Jesuit early childhood psycho-social analysis, that has the core tenet: Give me the child until he is seven and I will give you the man. Ms. Coulson skillfully uses this concept to anchor the narrative, without hitting the reader over the head with an over indulgence of psychological folderol. Throughout she makes intelligent assessments (Coulson’s degrees and experience are in Sociology and Anthropology). Including the fact that Judy was forced to sing in her childhood, which logically accounts for the fact that she sometimes resented being forced to sing as an adult. Especially when due inept management who squandered her earnings, there was no monetary reward for her efforts, and in fact debt that she often had no knowledge of. I certainly think that is worth a pout. “7 up” indeed!

Ms. Coulson’s recollections are crucial; especially those of being on the set of I Could Go On Singing. She was present in the audience while Garland filmed the iconic “Hello Blue Bird” number, and the title song from the film. Her memories of Judy’s behavior are very different than that of director Ronald Neame. Coulson recalls a very cooperative, consummate performer doing her job and showing concern for the extras.

Always for Judy is an extremely well written and perspicacious book which sparkles with love, warmth, intelligence, sincerity and humor. All of the ingredients that made Judy Garland, JUDY GARLAND!

2015-06-19-1434738767-3662126-2015061914347386981279902swansongs.jpg

Judy’s final years have turned into the stuff that legends are made of, and people often love to commiserate (falsely) about her voice “being gone.” Enter Hallow Records to correct this myth. The men behind this curtain are audio restoration engineer extraordinaire: John H. Hayley, and award winning music producer, Lawrence Schulman. Their latest project is with Judy Garland Swan Songs, First Flights: Her First and Last Recordings. To set the record straight Hayley aptly states:

“She remained in admirable command of her extra ordinary voice and riveting performing ability.”

These newly re-mastered recordings are proof positive that, as Scott Brogan curator and archivist of the online site The Judy Room offers:

“Judy still had “it” even at the very end.”

2015-06-19-1434738868-2204942-falkonerposter.jpg

Judy shines brightest during the March 25th, 1969 concert at the Falkoner Centret in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her last live performance ever. The Garland wit is clearly heard as a Dutch fan, tries to convey in his native tongue his deep regard for the star.

“You know I have trouble with my English, let alone!” Garland jokingly scolds photographers, “Well, stop photographing and translate!” Finally, the enthusiastic fan musters a great big “I LOVE YOU!” Her exuberant response: “Oh say, I sort of recognize that language! I love you, too! I love you all, you know that!”

“Joy prevailed” Mr. Schulman, astutely observes in his liner notes. “That unending optimism despite the disillusionment that life often offers us.”

Finally, composer John Meyer, whose contribution to the Garland legacy cannot be overestimated states that Garland’s voice had:

“The force of a locomotive. Judy had all her power and her command.”

Bravo, John H. Hayley for not only re-mastering these precious moments but for helping to dispel that myth of “a washed up Judy without a Rainbow.” Through such conservators like Joan Coulson and John H. Hayley preserving Garland’s legacy for future generations; the joy and genius of Judy Garland will continue to shine as bright as the stars in heaven.
