Born LaDonna Adrian Gaines December 31, 1948 – May 17, 2012, her death was a result of lung cancer, in which news sources state Summer’s had battled privately after the 9/11 toxins she had inhaled.

For over four decades Donna Summer let us grove with her on the radio, and took us through the disco era. With back to back hits, a 5 time Grammy winner, and positively one of my all-time favorite performers! Summer was the first artist to have three consecutive double albums reach number one on the U.S. Billboard chart, and she also charted four number-one singles in the United States within a 13-month period. Donna Summer a true legend will be missed by the millions she touched with her performances, talents. With the passing of so many powerful voices over the past few years, it gives one solace to think of them together making music above the clouds.
