The Guardian Quote:
“Summer, a native of Dorchester, Massachusetts, died Thursday in Florida, according to the showbiz website TMZ, which first reported the news. A family statement later confirmed the death.
Born LaDonna Adrian Gaines, Summer broke into the music business in her early 20s as a backup singer for the soul group Three Dog Night. Her first hit, Love to Love You Baby, reached the No 2 spot on the Billboard charts in 1976. The string of hit singles that followed – Could It Be Magic, Last Dance, Hot Stuff – revolutionised 1970s disco.”
