What's up, guys?! How's y'all weekend treating you?! It is 78° on a Saturday evening of May 18, 2019, and 7 years ago...of course time flies by really fast, one of the greatly and gorgeously talented songbirds has passed away. Donna Summer (real name LaDonna Adrian Gaines) was a singer-songwriter and actress. She gained prominence during the disco era of the late 1970s. A 5-time Grammy Award winner, Summer was the 1st artist to have 3 consecutive double albums reach № 1 on the US Billboard 200 chart and charted four № 1 singles in the US within a 12-month period. She has reportedly sold over 230 million records worldwide, making her one of the world's best-selling artists of all time. She also charted two № 1 singles on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in the US and a № 1 single in he United Kingdom. While influenced by the counterculture of the 1960s, Summer became the lead singer of a psychedelic rock band named Crow and moved to New York City. Joining a touring version of the musical Hair, she left New York and spent several years living, acting, and singing in Europe, where she met music producers Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte in Munich, where they recorded influential disco hits such as “Love to Love You Baby” and “I Feel Love”, marking her breakthrough into international career. Summer returned to the US in 1975, and other hits such as “Last Dance”, “MacArthur Park”, “Heaven Knows”, “Hot Stuff”, “Bad Girls”, “Dim All the Lights”, “No More Tears” (Enough Is Enough) (duet with Barbara Streisand)”, and “On the Radio” followed. She became known as the Queen of Disco, while her music gained a global following. In the 1980s, Summer was known for other smash hits like “Cold Love”, “Who Do You Think You're Foolin'”, “Love Is in Control”, “The Woman in Me”, “She Works Hard for the Money” and “This Time I Know It's for Real”. .
On May 17, 2012, Donna Summer died at her home in Naples, Florida from lung cancer at age 63. .
Rest in power, Donna. Thanks for the greatest and influential memories in the world. You will always be remembered. .
LaDonna Adrian Gaines
