Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher Duet Brings in the Waterworks

Last year of December 27, Carrie Fisher died from cardiac arrest while on a plane. She is well known for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars movie franchise. Just a day after, her mother Debbie Reynolds was rushed to a hospital. It was also because of stroke and sadly, passed away a short time later at the age of 84.

Losing icons in any genre from the entertainment industry is always devastating. With the passing of artists like Prince, David Bowie and Merle Haggard, fans find comfort by honoring them, their memories and their contributions through their art and legacy.

Both Reynolds and Fisher are entertainers in their own rights. They both performed for  a duet of “Happy Days” and “You Made Me Love You.”

Back in 2011, they had a ground breaking guesting in The Oprah Winfrey Show which brought about the duet. Reynolds shared that she always wanted her daughter to sing but she was unsupportive of it.

“You remember when you were just a little girl and you wouldn’t ever sing?” the “Singing in the Rain” actress asked her daughter. “You always shied away and I always wanted you to sing because you have a great voice.”

It was evident how much they both love and respect each other as they both shined as they sang the classic tunes.Eventhough Fisher said it had been 30 years since she last sang, the song was beautifully delivered.

Watch the performance of this touching mother-daughter duet below.

She and her mother appear in Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, a 2016 documentary about their relationship. It premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.

Any mother-daughter relationship is special but I can say theirs is extraordinary. This was proven in an interviewn with Todd Fisher.

“She wanted to be with Carrie,” Todd Fisher, Debbie’s son and Carrie’s brother, told Variety after Reynolds’ death. “In fact, those were the last words that she spoke this morning.”
