Summertime from Porgy & Bess

February 27, 2013

George Gerschwin died from a brain tumor at the age of 38, but before he did he produced some of the most exquisite songs Broadway ever saw.  Summertime is one of his most memorable.

From the 1959 movie

This from the 2012 Broadway revival.

Very entertaining take on the song by Leona Lewis on the 2006 X-Factor
