I got a Saturday Night Fever and the only prescription is more Bee Gees.
Artists from all genres of music spread the Bee Gees love last night (Feb. 14) during the taping of an upcoming TV special, Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Bee Gees.
Barry Gibb, the only surviving brother of the Bee Gees trio, was front row for the celebration of the 40-year anniversary of 1977’s Saturday Night Fever, a film that helped make John Travolta a star. The Bee Gees wrote and performed eight of the songs on the movie’s soundtrack, including “Stayin’ Alive,” “How Deep Is Your Love” and “Night Fever.”
An all-star cast of performers took part in the tribute, including Keith Urban (“To Love Somebody”), Little Big Town (“How Deep Is Your Love”) and Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett (“Islands in the Stream”).
Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Bee Gees will air on Easter Sunday, April 16, on CBS.
