27 | An Evening with Lynda Carter

Most superfans recognize Lynda Carter as the original “Wonder Woman,” from the hit 1970s TV series, but the Miss World USA winner has been singing from the age of five and has performed globally from London’s Palladium to Monte Carlo. Carter’s latest album, Red Rock N’ Blues, features re-imagined arrangements of timeless hits such as The Supremes’ “Stop! In the Name of Love” and The Everly Brothers’ “All I Have to Do Is Dream.” Far more than an accomplished singer, she was also honored earlier this year with a coveted star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame. An evening with Lynda Carter will truly be an evening with Wonder Woman — filled with song and stories from a celebrated cultural icon.
