MUSICIAN OF THE MONTH, MASSES OF MUSIC TRIVIA

In 1971, still using her birth name Donna Gaines, she released her first single, a cover of "Sally Go 'Round the Roses". Donna found international fame during the disco era of the 70s-80s with a string of No. 1 hits including 'Love to Love You Baby", with its erotic moans, one the most scandalous songs of the era and her early 80s "She Works Hard For The Money", which became an anthem for women's rights. Among her many awards and honors including 6 American Music Awards, and between 1979-2000 she recieved 17 Grammy nominations, winning 5 Grammy Awards: Last Dance -'79, Hot Stuff- '80, He's A Rebel -'84, Forgive M - '85, and Carry On-'98. Donna was the first artist to have three consecutive double albums reach number one on the US Billboard chart, and she also charted four number-one singles in the United States within a 13-month period. Following a nervous breakdown in 1979, Donna became a born-again Christian and decided she would no longer perform the song that had won her international fame and recognition, "Love to Love You Baby". A quarter of a century later, however, Donna began performing the song again live. As recently as 2011, she re-recorded the track, complete with racy sighs and moans, for the "Loverdose" fragrance advertisement by Diesel. Donna continued to score top ten hits on Billboard's Dance Chart well into in the new millennium, and released her last album, Crayons, in 2008
