Music on My Mind

Donna Summer, "On the Radio." LaDonna Adrian Gaines, better known by her career name, Donna Summer, has died of lung cancer. I'm not a huge fan of disco, but there's no doubt that she had a stunning voice. She has a very lovely rendition of Amy Grant's "Breath of Heaven" as well; it starts slowly but builds up impressively. Whereas Grant's version has a more questioning sound to it, Summer's version strikes me as expressing more of a mood of resolution.
