Legendary singer Steve Lawrence, known for his work in the ’50s and ’60s as part of the duo Steve and Eydie, has passed away at the age of 88. His son, David Lawrence, shared heartfelt words about his father, emphasizing the impact Steve had on many people’s lives and expressing his own gratitude for having such a talented and charming father.

The news of Steve Lawrence’s death was confirmed on Thursday, with reports stating that he succumbed to complications related to Alzheimer’s disease. Throughout his career, Lawrence performed alongside his wife, Eydie Gormé, until her retirement in 2009. Gormé passed away in 2013 at the age of 84.

Known for hits like “Go Away Little Girl” and “Pretty Blue Eyes,” Lawrence also made appearances on iconic shows such as “The Ed Sullivan Show” and “The Carol Burnett Show.”

His talent extended beyond music, as he took on roles in films like “The Blues Brothers” and earned a Tony nomination for his Broadway performance in “What Makes Sammy Run” in 1964. Lawrence’s versatility and dedication to his craft solidified his status as a revered performer in the entertainment industry.

Saturday night beneath the stars.

Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce were spotted getting down at Coachella on Saturday while watching her BFF Jack Antonoff’s band, Bleachers, perform at the festival in Indio, Calif.

Page Six spotted the couple dancing side stage as the band performed during the first weekend of the annual music festival. TikToker Kale Tompkins, who was in the crowd during the concert, recorded a video of the lovebirds’ PDA.

This is the first time Swift, 34, has attended the celeb-loved music festival since 2016, when she famously rocked up to the desert with a bleach-blond ‘do — known as “Bleachella.”

Meanwhile, Kelce, also 34, attended the event in 2022 and 2023 alongside some of his best friends.

They were said to be going to the festival to see Swift’s pal Lana Del Rey perform on Friday night, but instead chose to stay in LA for a sushi date. BACKGRID

Us Weekly reported that the couple was going to attend Coachella to see Antonoff’s band take the stage.

“They both want to see Lana Del Rey and [Jack Antonoff’s band] Bleachers,” an insider told the outlet last week.

Del Rey, 38, performed her set on Friday night, but Swift and Kelce skipped it and instead stayed in LA for a sushi date.

Swift and Del Rey have been friends for over a decade, recently collaborating on the former’s 2022 track “Snow on the Beach.”

The “Young & Beautiful” singer has also seemingly gotten to know Kelce in recent months, attending the 2024 Super Bowl alongside Swift.

The source noted that the couple planned on “renting a house in the area” during the first weekend of the famed festival.

It was later reported that the lovebirds, who started dating last summer, snagged a spot at the exclusive, members-only Madison Club in La Quinta, Californ

“They want privacy so The Madison Club is perfect for them, because not just anyone can stay there,” a source told the Daily Mail Thursday.

“They don’t want a ton of eyes on them, they want to be able to let their guard down and be comfortable,” the insider added.

While the couple’s top priority is supporting their friends, the hotel also has a world-class golf course — which Kelce, a golf enthusiast, is likely to check out.

Other amenities include a day spa and a luxe fitness facility equipped with swimming pools and fitness instructors.

The quick trip to the desert was an easy trek for the couple, who have been spending most of their time together in Los Angeles.

Sources told Page Six that the hunky athlete and the pop star appeared “stylish and happy” while enjoying a date night at the Bird Street Club on Tuesday.

While they tried to evade the paparazzi outside, eyewitnesses said the pair was in great spirits while dining with another couple.

“They were low-key, very tall! They were with two other people,” a source told us.

While it’s unclear if the couple is planning to head back up to LA after their trip to Coachella, Swift will be gearing up for the release of her new album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” which drops on April 19.
