Donna Summer was one of the most successful female recording artists of all time. 14 of her singles reached the pop top 10 and four of them went to #1.

Her 1977 #6 hit single "I Feel Love" is considered by many to be one of the most influential dance music recordings of all time. Donna Summer was a winner of five Grammy Awards.
