American icons – Disco Queen

Donna Summer, the “Queen of Disco,” has died at 63 after a battle with cancer. I remember in elementary school my friend Tammy winning two copies of “Hot Stuff” (on 45!) in a radio contest. She kindly gave me one and I listened to it over and over again on my turntable. Yep, ‘memba those? Donna Summer was an icon of 70s disco, winning five Grammy Awards and igniting dance floors around the world, not to mention my little dancing South Carolina heart and my make-shift disco in our garage. Thought today that I’d post an illustration of me disco dancing drawn by The Bedtime Book for Dogs artist Paul Heath and point you to this beautiful video of Last Dance. All I’ll add is that Heaven Knows there’s some dancing inside the Pearly Gates tonight.
