Donna Summer

Born LaDonna Adrian Gaines, Summer's talent was discovered singing in churches in Boston's Mission Hill neighborhood. The devout Christian went on to become the "undisputed queen of disco" and will make her hometown proud when she's posthumously inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year.
