Maureen McGovern — Live on Stage
Monday evening, songstress Maureen McGovern entertained an audience of over 700 people assembled at the Marshalltown High School Auditorium through Marshalltown Live on Stage, an all-volunteer non-profit concert association, now in its 80th year. She sang tunes from the “American Pop Songbook” as well as “Oscar Winners and Movie Classics.” This was the first installment in the six-part concert series for the 2018-2019 season. McGovern rose to international acclaim with her 1972 number one hit song “The Morning After” from the film “The Poseidon Adventure,” with the tune winning the Academy Award for Best Original Song. She attained further success with singing other movie tunes including “We May Never Love Like This Again” from the 1974 motion picture “The Towering Inferno,” which also won an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
