She was a girl from Boston with a voice from heaven, who shot through the stars from gospel choir to dance floor diva. But what the world didn’t know was how Summer risked it all to break through barriers, becoming an icon of an era and an inspiration for every music diva who followed. With a score featuring more than 20 of Summer’s classic hits including “Bad Girls,” “On the Radio,” and “Hot Stuff,” this electric experience is a moving tribute to the voice of a generation.FoxTheatre.org
