Happy 62nd Birthday to Donna Summer! Summer’s career might have cooled off after her stupendous run in the 70s and 80s, but what a mighty run it was.

She accumulated a stellar string of hits including Bad Girls, Hot Stuff, MacArthur Park, Love to Love You Baby, Heaven Knows, Enough is Enough, On the Radio, She Works Hard for the Money, Dim All the Lights, This Time I Know It’s For Real and Last Dance, among others.

Donna turns 62 today and she not only has kept working, she’s still in magnificent form as I discovered last summer when she performed at The Hollywood Bowl.

She brought her best to that night’s show and her best is still superb. She looked dazzling and her voice was as strong and clear as ever as she performed MacArthur Park, Enough is Enough, On the Radio, Last Dance and other hits for us.

What I really loved about Donna was that, unlike a remote Diana Ross a few weeks earlier at the Nokia, Miss Summer was completely engaging and connected to the audience mentioning how her daughter was playing at the Roxy last night, what each song meant to her and saying lovely things about the music of The Carpenters (Richard Carpenter was also on the bill at The Bowl that night).
Donna first sold out The Bowl back in 1979 and has continued to do so as recently as 2008. Here she is from an earlier concert (on MTV I believe) performing Last Dance.
