The brother-sister duo, famous for hosting the televised variety show “Donny & Marie” from 1975 to 1979, wrapped their live show of the same name at the Flamingo Las Vegas hotel and casino Saturday night.
In a clip of their final show captured by “The Talk,” the siblings fought back tears as they sang “May Tomorrow Be a Perfect Day,” while past clips of the two were projected behind them. The siblings used to sing the same duet on their TV show.
“Goodnight, everybody,” they said together in the clip.
Marie, 60, paid tribute to her brother, 61, in an Instagram post Sunday.
“Well we made it over the finish line and I only limped a little!!” she captioned a video of the two taking their final bows. “Last night as ‘Donny and Marie’ we sang together again but this time was for the last time. I’m not losing him, we are, after all, still brother and sister and I’ll see him at Christmas”
Though the songstress wrote “it isn’t easy to move forward without tears,” she noted change is “the only thing in life that IS consistent.”
“During this time I literally got my life back on track,” she continued. “I was a single mom with 8 kids and a lot of baggage – along with their broken hearts to heal. Performing with Donny provided stability for my children by not traveling and for the first time I felt peace. I could be a mom and still do what I loved with someone I trusted, my brother Donny – I love you Donny!”
Marie also described the support she felt in Las Vegas following the suicide of her 18-year-old son Michael in 2010.
“Thank you for being my big brother,” she continued. “I believe one of the main reasons Heavenly Father put us back to together was to have support for my children when my son Michael passed. We found strength from family and our new family of friends @FlamingoVegas”
