NO it IS Adrian !
Ya' gotta remember that in America names aren't always the same gender as everywhere else.
They have a habit of inventing names as well, hence all the Lawanda's, Latoyah's AND Ladonna [Donna's REAL first name !] etc that pop up on US talk-shows.
All countries have names that can be both, remember the mum in The Waltons ?
HER real name is Michael Learned !

I've seen a picture of a [1 track ?] promo CD Single for 'Don't Cry For Me Argentina' which isn't listed.
It had the same cover picture as the Anthology collection had.

oops - it's LaDonna ANDREA Gaines, not 'Adrian' !

Just one of the best singers of all time, her seventies albums with Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte are absolute classics, groundbreaking in their day ... We will not see her like again.

love to love you Donna

Donna Summer was the First Pop Star I ever remember 'liking'.
There's a warmth in her voice that shines even in her shout-ier moments.

Summer 1979 was the year that Anita Ward and Donna Summer fought unholy war with each other in the Euro charts. I think Anita won with "Ring my Bell" against Donna's "Hot Stuff". but it was only a battle .. Donna won the war in the end. I'd love to say to that it was sugared up disco bollocks, but there is a soul in Donna (much helped by 3rd parties mind you), her voice that just said: adolescents of the world unite! I only hope Katie Perry ( I would mention Lady Gaga but she isn't worth Donna's spit actually) manages a SHADOW of what Donna was capable of achieving. RIP Donita! Dueña de los aires ahora eres!
