Last year there was only one movie on everyone’s mind – and that movie was A Star is Born.
Directed by Bradley Cooper, and starring music superstar, Lady Gaga, the movie told the story of a young woman raising herself to an almost divine level of stardom. Since its release, the movie has gone on to earn several major award nominations, winning the Oscar for Best Original Song.
To this day, the now iconic soundtrack of the film still remains to be a favorite among the general public. And it seems that both Cooper and Gaga have noticed. Recently, Cooper admitted that he would not be against performing a concert version of the film’s most loved songs. Which would be fantastic!

And it definitely birthed a star.

But that's not all.

Music that still resonates with audiences to this day.

They even sung it at the Oscars.

And the song's success still continues.

Maybe it could be performed at the Hollywood Bowl?

That would be cool, right?" The Hollywood Bowl is now known for its cinematic events, holding concert versions of films such as The Little Mermaid and A Nightmare Before Christmas.
And we think that Gaga would be interested, too!
