Donna Summer Net Worth: Donna Summer was an American singer, songwriter, and painter who gained prominence during the disco era of the late 1970s and who had a net worth of $75 million dollars. Donna Summer was born LaDonna Adrian Gaines on December 31, 1948 in Boston where she first became involved with singing through her church choir groups before joining a number of bands influenced by the Motown Sound. She joined a touring version of the musical "Hair", and spent several years living, acting, and singing in West Germany, where she met music producer Giorgio Moroder. When she returned to the U.S., Summer co-wrote the song "Love to Love You Baby". The song was released in 1975 to enormous commercial success. Over the following years Summer followed this success with a string of other hits, such as "I Feel Love", "Last Dance", "MacArthur Park", "Hot Stuff", "Bad Girls", "Dim All the Lights", "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)", and "On the Radio". She became known as the "Queen of Disco" and regularly frequented Studio 54 New York City. A five-time Grammy Award winner, she was the first artist to have three consecutive double albums reach No. 1 on the United States "Billboard" album chart and charted four number-one singles in the United States within a 12-month period. Summer has reportedly sold over 130 million records, making her one of the world's best-selling artists of all time. Tragically, Donna Summer lost her battle with lung cancer on May 17, 2012, at her home in Naples, Florida.
