A Tribute to Donna Summer

We are deeply saddened today to hear that Donna Summer passed away this morning after an extensive battle with cancer. She was 63 and was finishing up a new album. Though she may now be apart from us, Summer will have an eternal legacy, as she paved the road for so much of disco and pop music throughout the 70s and 80s. With timeless hits like “I Feel Love”, “Hot Stuff”, “She Works Hard For The Money”, and “Last Dance”, she will not be forgotten.

To celebrate her lifetime of achievement, we wanted to curate a small list of artists who have paid tribute to Summer through covers. Summer’s influence spread far beyond the realm of disco and is even still being felt. Below, check out a bunch of great bands covering Summer’s hit “I Feel Love”:
