The crystal-clarion voice of Julie Andrews is no more, says her husband, director Blake Edwards. The beloved star of the classics "My Fair Lady," "Mary Poppins," "The Sound of Music" and "Victor/Victoria," 63, underwent surgery more than a year ago to remove non-cancerous throat nodules. Rather than restoring her singing voice to working condition, the operation had the opposite effect. "If you heard (her voice), you'd weep," Edwards tells this Sunday's Parade magazine. A spokesman for Andrews said the star is "very saddened" by the problem, but is keeping her spirits up.
