Sad to hear of Donna Summer's passing. It was perhaps a misfortune that she became a star at the height of the disco craze because I believe her sheer talent would have ensured her of a long string of hits had she not been lumped in with the disco movement.

Donna became a born-again Christian and continued to make good music well into the 2000s. In 1994, Donna recorded what is one of my favorite Christmas albums of all time - Christmas Spirit. Not even a hint of her disco roots. Her vocal performance on this album is right up there with Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey in their prime.

I know it is out of season but I highly recommend you bookmark this album for download when Christmas comes around again. You will not be disappointed.

I figure the same media that lionized the drug addict Whitney Houston after her passing...will only focus on Donna’s “intolerance” of sodomites.

I remember being the first music I listened to as a youngster in the early 80s, what did I know, I was 6 years old and I liked the upbeat tempo more than the lyrics. Rest in Peace Donna.
