We play a lot of her hits on the “Disco Drive Home,” from “Bad Girls” to “Hot Stuff,” “Heaven Knows” to “Last Dance.” She is, after all, still known as the “Queen of Disco.” Now, the late Donna Summer is the subject of a new documentary coming to HBO.
Donna Summer was born in Boston and launched her singing career with a 1960s psychedelic rock band in New York City. From there, Donna went to Germany, where she starred in a stage production of the musical Hair. While in Munich, she began recording a solo artist. Summer passed away in 2012 and was posthumously inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame the following year.
According to Best Classic Bands, the HBO documentary, Love To Love You, Donna Summer, was directed by Roger Ross Williams and Donna Summer’s daughter, Brooklyn Sudano. It’s described as an “unexpected and intimate portrait” that explores “the highs and lows of a life lived on the global stage.”
The documentary had its theatrical world premiere at the 2023 Berlin International Film Festival. Love To Love You, Donna Summer will debut May 20th on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max. And you can catch the “Disco Drive Home” every Friday afternoon at 4:05 on K104.7!
