Earlier today, the stars of the show — LaChanze, Ariana DeBose, and Storm Lever, all playing the legendary singer at different ages — as well as one of the show's producers, Tommy Mottola, appeared on NBC's Today Show, with the lead trio performing two of Donna Summer's hits, "MacArthur Park" and "She Works Hard for the Money". Check out the live performances below.
