LaDonna Adrian Gaines (born December 31, 1948 ), known by her stage name, Donna Summer is an American singer who gained prominence and notoriety during the "disco" era of the seventies with the majority of her early work produced by the team of Giorgio Moroder and Pete Belotte.

Summer's number of hits, in the late seventies included "Love to Love You Baby", "I Feel Love", "Last Dance", "Hot Stuff" and "Bad Girls". These hits helped the singer earn the title "The Queen of Disco". Following her split from Casablanca Records in the early 1980s and following a backlash against disco, Summer continued to have hits in various genres including "She Works Hard for the Money" and "This Time I Know It's for Real".
