Summer found the balance well using her mezzo-soprano vocal range to become one of the most successful female vocalists of her time. Summer was given the title of "Queen of Disco" because in a way she elevated the genre of music to be more than it was, with an infusion of dance, funk, and R&B. Summer's was an incredibly accomplished vocalist; she had 17 Grammy nominations, including one nomination for Album of the Year (the album was entitled "Bad Girls") in 1980. Summer won five Grammy awards throughout her entire career. This woman's vocal range was awe inspiring, and her voice will be missed; she was a living legend!
Here are some of Summer's best and most famous tracks:
"Last Dance" -This was the track that made her the most famous, and catapulted her career.
"Bad Girls" This was one of the tracks that was difficult for her to reconcile with her upbringing, but in the end she sang with grace and poise.
"She Works Hard for the Money" This is one of the earliest music videos, and has since become a classic for the iconic "working girl"
"Hot Stuff"-Another fun disco beat that made Summer a legend!
