However, it's pretty clear that some youths of today don't know where this song originated or that Julie Andrews masterminded the role in the 1965 classic, "The Sound Of Music." Let's remind them just who Dame Julie Andrews is, shall we?

THIS is Julie Andrews. Excuse me, DAME Julie Andrews. Golden Globe Winner. Oscar Winner. Gifted songstress.

Before her voice was tragically taken away from us by a doctor who couldn't perform surgery properly, she was America's (and the UK's!) singing treasure.

Mary effing Poppins. She put "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" on the map!

Let's not forget she won the Oscar for this role. WERK.

Julie only works with legends. Ergo, she worked with Carol Burnett. Wherever we go we belong, we belong, we belong....together!

Ruler of the perfect pitch.

To bring the point home, here's her performing the classic "The Hills Are Alive" with a full orchestra.

Hey, Julie.

YES, YOU.

Keep twirling your way into our hearts, Dame.
