An artist who once defined the ‘70s pop music generation as the “Queen of Disco,” Donna Summer has become one of the world’s leading singers and songwriters. The career of the five-time Grammy-winner spans a range of musical genres from R&B and rock to inspirational and dance. "Love to Love You Baby" paved the way for such Grammy-award winning hits as "Bad Girls" and "Hot Stuff" as well as the Academy-award winning theme song "Last Dance" from the film Thank God It’s Friday, which remains a shining moment of Summer’s career.
She Works Hard For The Money. In 1994, she released Endless Summer, a greatest hits retrospective, containing a new song, "Melody of Love," which became Billboard’s #1 Dance Record of the Year. She also released the critically acclaimed album Christmas Spirit, a collection of Summer’s original songs and holiday standards recorded with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. Summer spent the ’90s continuing to tour, performing to sold-out audiences.
Ms. Summer has earned 5 Grammy Awards, 3 consecutive number one Platinum albums (she is the only artist, male or female ever to accomplish this), 11 Gold albums, 4 number one singles, 2 platinum singles, and 12 gold singles. In addition to her recording and performing career, Donna Summer is an accomplished visual artist whose work has been shown at exhibitions and galleries in every major U.S. city and in Japan in a special exhibition sponsored by Steven Spielberg.
