To honor of Donna Summer, who passed away last week American Idol finalist Jessica Sanchez will be performing a tribute to the music legend, and will be joined by none other thanKristin Chenowrth for a duet, which the pair apparently filmed last night!
She said over on twitter:
I just had a great experience. I will tell everyone about it tomorrow night!

We really want to know what she will be signing.
We bet it will be good tho.
After she sadly passed away last Thursday , we reported that her family had decided to have a public memorial for the singer tomorrow.
But now its looking like that’s not the case now, seeing as the church ceremony will be by invitation only.
She will be laid to rest in Nashville tomorrow and the church is expecting about 1,000 mourners to pay their last respects to the songbird.
It has been said that Donnas family have a list of people that they want at the service what is close friends and family.
Donna’s family have also been insisting that they don’t want the service to turn into a media field day, hoping to keep it as private as possible.
Though Summer, a music legend herself, worked with many other industry greats, there’s no word yet on which celebrities — if any — will be attending.
Going to be such a sad time.
There has been so much celebrity support for Robin Gibb on twitter for fellow celebs.
