    Donna Summer

    By on

    Donna Gaines, born in Dorchester, raised on Mission Hill, is one unappreciated artist. Ms. Summer wrote melody as well as lyrics. He voice had all of the technical mastery of Broadway worth an R & B feel. Her work on "Four Seasons of Love" was a prototype of Europop. "I Feel Love" was the prototype for EDM. Yes, recognition of Donna Summer is entirely appropriate.
