Ariel and Michael Moran with their Wonder Woman photos they've had since childhood.  They had them signed by Lynda Carter!

The beautiful and beloved Lynda Carter, Miss World USA 1972 and the iconic hero of the 70s DC Comics TV series Wonder Woman, landed in the Ice Palace in Cherry Grove and it was Wonderwoman to the rescue.

There she was! Still fighting evil as the Grand Marshal for the 2013 Capital Pride Parade in Washington, D.C.]

The face and the figure seemingly ageless. But gone were the magic bracelets and power belt, the tights, the color.

Now, stark in black shirt belted over tights – (she obviously did not dress for the locale)

A no frills outfit to go with her no frills show.


The color was provided by the multi-hued medleys, a meld of country, blues, vintage, which paid homage to the Andrews Sisters, Hank Williams, Billie Holiday, Patsy Kline,

Something for everyone.

Her delivery straightforward as were her emotions. She kept the chatter to a minimum, concentrating on the music


Her appearance, drawing spontaneous cheers from the crowd – opened her show with “Oh! Kiss Me Baby” and swiveled into a bossa nova “Sway With Me”. And then to “A Little Thing Called Love”.



The magic ingredient was the hugely talented band, and an outstanding trio of studio singers from Washington State and long time friends with whom she has been working.

They contributed a great deal as they delivered close harmonies as did her genius guitarist, and the rest of the combo, bass and piano, whose compelling rhythms provided the underbelly of a varied musical ride.


Her rendition of “Fever” had the audience snapping along. “Stop in the Name of Love” provided a change of rhythm and mood delivered in a slow and meaningful way emphasizing the lyric which is not usual.


But then switched to a unique version of the Billie Holiday classic “G-d Bless the Child”  She joined the trio to form a dynamic quartet channeling the Andrews Sister’s “Choo Choo Boogie”, World War II classic and a great crowd pleaser. Her “Lost in the Stars” had a special significance.


In a rare moment of sharing, she confided that she flunked college but now her daughter is going away to school “my daughter wanted to get away from me” which inspired the song she wrote “Just One More hug’ revealing a parent’s heartbreak when a child leaves even though knowing its right.


This le to another reminiscence of the OMG! Moment when she first met her husband inspiring the hormonal “I Will Stay with You Baby All Night”, up tempo, full of youthful exuberance

But then moved onto a more adult, sexy tempo-ed “I’m On Fire”.

Ms. Carter shined in her native milieu when she delivered the Patsy Kline iconic standard “Crazy” as only a country gal can do it, which had the crowd singing along.  And the Hank Williams bass driven “Broken Heart”


Then after a leisurely paced program the finale was like a fireworks as the songs started coming one atop another like a race horse to the finish.


A spirited Andrews sister “Candy Man” and as an encore “Let The Good Times Roll” as many in the house raced for the 9:45 ferry.


It was an evening packed with music, not a lot of chit chat, as straight forward as the gal herself.

Dreams do come true…………
