Barbra Streisand Says She's Shocked At Death of Donna Summer
The 1979 collaboration between the two vocal powerhouses was recorded for Streisand's Wet album and as a new track for Summer's compilation double album entitled On the Radio: Greatest Hits Volumes 1 & 2. It quickly climbed to the top of the Billboard charts where it remained for two weeks.
The full statement from Streisand reads: "I was shocked to hear about Donna. She was so vital the last time I saw her a few months ago. I loved doing the duet with her. She had an amazing voice and was so talented. .. It's so sad."
Summer passed away in Florida from a battle with lung cancer at age 63.
