THE WANNA SHOW REMEMBERS THE WORLD FAMOUS DISCO QUEEN, DONNA SUMMER WHO PASSED AWAY 4 YEARS AGO, TODAY...
Disco legend, Donna Summer Sudano, passed away May 17, 2012 at 63 years old, reportedly of lung cancer which was not related to smoking but potentially caused by the dust and toxic aftermath of 9/11 in downtown Manhattan.
THE WANNA host, Gina Glickman Giordan, had the honor of interviewing Summer just after she hit centerstage and performed live at the "Stamp Your Feet" tour at the West Hampton Beach Performing Arts Center (WHBPAC) in West Hampton, New York as part of WHBPAC 10th Anniversary season celebration, on July 27, 2008.
Giordan shared, "I still remember Donna's performance that night, every single person at that sold out show was standing up and dancing! Donna was unforgettable! I remember as a kid playing her records, singing and dancing for hours with my cousin in her basement, in Dix Hills, Long Island."
That memorable performance at the WHBPAC, Summer sang several hits off of her latest album "Crayons." The album debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart making it Summer's highest debuting album ever. It also debuted at #5 on the Billboard R&B chart -- another personal best. "Crayons" was Donna's first album of all new studio material in 17 years and was her highest charting album since "She Works Hard For The Money" in 1983.
Today, four years after Summer's passing, we hope fans will celebrate the five time Grammy winning artist, by remembering Donna's loving spirit and playing her memorable music all day long!
Join THE WANNA team and celebrate the QUEEN OF DISCO by blasting the soundtrack of the '70's, her award winning hits including; "Last Dance," ''Love to Love You Baby" and "Bad Girls!"
RIP Donna Summer, WE LOVE TO LOVE YOU, ALWAYS!
"Ya Know You Wanna!"
