Donna Summer

Recommended Posts

Donna Summer (born LaDonna Adrian Gaines December 31, 1948) [1] is an American singer-songwriter and musician who gained prominence during the disco era of music.

Summer was trained as a gospel singer prior to her introduction in the music industry, as were many then-contemporary music artists. However, Summer's notable songwriting capabilities, in addition to her collaborations with producer-songwriters Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte, were able to set her apart from rivals in the industry.

Though she is most notable for her disco hits, Summer's repertoire has expanded to include contemporary R&B, rock, mainstream pop, and even gospel. Summer is one of the most successful female recording artists of the 1970s and 1980s, and holds the record for having three consecutive double albums hit #1 on the Billboard charts. She also became the first female artist to have four number-one singles in a twelve-month period. Summer has sold over 130 million records worldwide

Nice bunch of vids. I like her well enought that I bought a cd a few yrs ago. :lol:

I didn't buy her last album, Crayons, which was released this year. I found it floating in cyberspace. She still sounds great.

I think disco was fantastic, some of the best records ever produced. It is a shame how disco bands and artists have tried to disassociate themselves from the music that made their careers. Donna is the Queen of Disco and should be proud of it!

Donna should make the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next time.

I agree. Lots of hits. She had an album out recently -- not bad, either

Donna was identified with the disco era, and this made it tough for her in the 80s. Personally I thought disco was great. Donna's passing at 63 was untimely. Maybe they will induct her into the Hall of Fame now.

Well, Donna was inducted. Too bad she's not around to enjoy it!

My favorite Donna Summer track.  The vid is live clips but the audio is the original studio 45rpm single.  For best results, play the vinyl on a high end system at near max volume.  You may want to learn sign language beforehand because if you play it right, you will need the sign language afterwards.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
