Donna Summer

Disco queen Donna Summer, who sadly passed away in the spring of 2012, was the ultimate dance music diva. Summer scored a remarkable 19 Number One hits on the dance charts between 1975 and 2008 – second only to Madonna. At the peak of her popularity, she was the only artist ever to chart three consecutive Number One double albums.

Active: 1968-2012

Previous nominations: 4

Signature songs: "Love to Love You Baby," "I Feel Love," "Hot Stuff," "Last Dance," "MacArthur Park"
