The Two of Us, the musical duo of Willie Nininger and Jan Scruggs, perform famous duets that will bring back fond memories. Their voices blend in perfect harmony as they sing romantic songs such as "Unchained Melody" and Frank and Nancy Sinatra's "Something Stupid." Their replication of Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe" is certain to keep toes tapping and audiences grinning.
