They Reminisce Over You: Donna Summer (MURAL by SERVE ONE)

LaDonna Adrian Gaines
Donna Summer
(12/31/48 – 05/17/12)

A couple of days ago, the Disco Queen has received her wings. She unfortunately lost her battle to cancer, which has been a very rough battle in the past two weeks for her and her fans. Hearing about the news the same day through a friend via text, South Bronx’s legendary graffiti artist/DJ SERVE (known as SERVE ONE) immediately paid homage to the ‘Last Dance‘ artist by curating her 1978 double-LP cover Live and MoreServe One went to respond to his friends on his facebook page on how this came about..

….when I came to Tuff City today, I never knew about her death at all. My friend text me telling me that Diana Ross was dead at first. So when I Googled it up, that’s when I found out it was Donna that died. So I grabbed some cans and blazed this for all of you that loved her.

  1. Whoever did this grafitti dedication to Donna Summer needs to be thanked personally…I had to make that MY cover page. So many people I know knew Donna personally including some of my family. Donna used to babysit my cousin, then when she got older, she was roomate’s w/Donnas sister. My dad also met Donna’s family. Ive heard NOTHING BUT good things about her…an amazing woman, an amazing life and an amazing career. Bostons #1 DIVA…RIP LADONNA ADRIAN GAINES ♥ ♥ ♥ 3’S UP!

    PS: Wish you had done one here in Boston…it would’ve been fitting since Donna grew up here, so many people I know knew her personally…she’ll always be our BAD GIRL!!!
