Although she performed the world over during her long career in music, Boston-born Donna Summer (LaDonna Adrian Gaines) spent more than a little while in Atlantic City, where she performed just about every other year — or every year for a spell. The “Queen of Disco,” who passed away after a battle with cancer on May 17, is seen below with her two daughters, Amanda and Brooklyn, on stage at the Trump Taj Mahal in 1990 during one of her many shows in the resort.
Here is an interview with the late Summer from 2010, where she discusses her first new album in nearly two decades, how she is always writing, and how she was an accomplished painter.
Summer worked hard for her money indeed, and she will be missed by music fans across the world. AC Weekly sends our condolences to her family and friends.
Our prayers also go out to the family and friends of the late Robin Gibb who passed away on Sunday, May 20, also from cancer, at age 62.
