My Prima DONNA

So saddened by the news that Donna Summer died today at the age of 63.  Here is the link to a 2009 post I wrote about my memories growing up to her music. 

I may not be religious but Heaven Knows I will miss her.  Thank you, Donna.

RG, wonderful tribute to Donna (back in 2009). You described me in more ways than you realize.
I can't tell you how many wonderful hours I spent with her music, connecting with it in a way I didn't understand then (and perhaps still don't now).
Her latest CD, "Crayons," is terrific. If you haven't already, check it out. You won't be disappointed.

Always loved Donna. Despite her sexualized image in the '70s, I saw her as the mother who sang to her daughter Mimi on the Live and More album. In interviews, she always seemed open and very real. More than anything, her voice and her catchy music always struck a chord with me.
