A LOOK BACK

A LOOK BACK: Donna Summer

May 22nd, 2012, byStaff

On May 17, 2012, it was announced that the five-time Grammy-winning singer passed away after a battle with cancer. The “Queen of Disco” made a name for herself with her hits “Last Dance,” “Hot Stuff” and “Bad Girls.”

Summer sat down with us in 2008, when she released her final CD “Crayons.” Watch the conversation in which she highlighted her career and reflected on whether she was tired of being called the “Queen of Disco,” spoke a little bit of German and discussed what turned out to be her last album, released after a 17-year hiatus.

“I just think people are hungry for what they consider meaty and substantial and I think that a lot of people relate to that music and…it’s attached to so many memories in their lives and in the vernacular of their living that they want to have access to that memory again… It’s all about the moment.”
