The story of a legend
Donna Summer didn't just sing disco; she grew up as a gospel choir singer, but also sang in a rock band, and spent a year in Germany as a member of the cast of Hair, before joining the Viennese Folk Opera. She found fame a few years after settling in Munich and meeting producing and songwriting team Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte. The result saw them create The Hostage and her first album, Lady of the Night. In 1975 they recorded Love to Love You Baby, which became a huge hit in Europe and topped the Billboard club chart.
She had a score of disco hits during the 70s but when her subgenre supposedly ended, Summer changed direction, released She Works Hard for the Money and became an MTV star releasing high energy hits that continued to smash the charts. Her final chart-topping single, To Paris with Love, was released in 2010; she died two years later of lung cancer leaving behind her an incredible legacy that inspires and thrills to this day.
