The picture above is a 29 year-old Donna Summer on a 1979 cover of Penthouse.
I can't tell you how excited I am to be interviewing Donna Summer. She is the first black sex symbol, amazing voice, sound of a generation and an icon. I am just about delirious... last time I felt this way was when I interviewed Patti LaBelle.
Please submit your questions for Donna Summer in the comments. The diva has a new album coming out, Crayons, on May 20th, which is her first studio album in 17 years. For some of the young folks (I had to convince a 22 year-old yesterday that her name is Donna Summer not "Summers"!), here is an excellent performance of her singing "Last Dance". Keep in mind, without Donna Summer, there would be no Janet or Beyonce. Donna was the first one to incorporate oozing sexuality with talent.
She rips the vocals on this damn song! Not a note out of place! Plus, she is emoting in that camera -- I love it!
