Donna Summer seemingly rose from nowhere to become the Queen of Disco in the Seventies. She recorded the sexy song that could only be played after midnight, "Love to Love You, Baby" and became an overnight success. There was a smoldering sexuality about Donna Summer that the record companies constantly tried to exploit. But, Donna just wanted to a simple God-fearing girl.
Her life was not without its trials, but Donna was at the top of her game in the Seventies and the Eighties. When disco fell out of favor, she switched to a more rock and roll format and just kept going.
Winner of Grammys and American Music Awards, she hit the Top 40 twenty times. She had several number one hits, like the iconic "MacArthur Park," "Bad Girls," and "Hot Stuff."
All the Legends of Rock & Roll books are essentially biographies, but I am interested primarily in the music. You'll find that the emphasis is on the music, how it came to be, who wrote it and performed it and any juicy tidbits about any given song or album.
