The night Donna Summer sang “Superstar” at The Hollywood Bowl accompanied by Richard Carpenter

Donna Summer first sold out The Hollywood Bowl back in 1979 and had continued to do so as recently as 2008.

In the summer of 2010, I was among those who were fortunate enough to see her perform there for what I believe was the last time.

I’ll never forget it/

Here’s part of what I wrote about that night on this blog back then and Donna’s performance of the Carpenters classic Superstar:

The first thing I want to say is this: Donna Summer and Richard Carpenter please, please, please get together and record Superstar.

At last night’s Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame Concert, these two inductees collaborated on the classic Carpenters hit and it was what I would call beautiful music. Donna made the song her own but stayed to the spirit of the original recorded by Richard and his sister, the late, great Karen Carpenter.

    Simply Fantastic… Principally at this moment at the great Donna fly away… Many thanks Greg…

  4. Karen always liked Donna and vice versa. Hope they’re now finally singing together in heaven.

  5. I’m still in a state of shock and sadness about Donna passing away. I have every album she ever recorded, and I sure hope there’s unreleased stuff out there that will come to light in the future.

    Donna was such a classy, lovely, intelligent woman. I will miss her very, very much.

  6. I am in shock. Donna Summer & K.C. are my biological parents…Gloria Gaynor threw out the key…God took away my mother way too soon…
