Happy Birthday Donna Summer!

Donna Summer, without question, possessed the most versatile voice in popular music. Her forays into rock, disco, R&B, country, jazz, Broadway, and gospel are unparalleled in their quality and breadth. She earned five Grammy Awards in four different genre categories, amassed four era-defining number one pop singles and three consecutive number one albums, a stack of gold and platinum discs, and boldly pushed beyond the “Queen of Disco” title she rightfully earned during her reign of the dance floor in the 1970s.

In honor of Ms. Summer, there was a musical dedicated to the singer called the Summer: The Donna Summer Musical (2019). So bummed out to have missed this amazing show when they were in Los Angeles but super glad it’s making its way around the city to revive the legacy Ms. Summer has left behind!

“I don’t really try to predict what you can and will happen with things. Sometimes you think something’s gonna be a huge success, and it isn’t. And sometimes you pay no attention to something whatsoever, and God just makes it into everything.” – Donna Summer
