The Ultimate Donna Summer Tribute performed by Rainere Martin
Blessed by God with the gift of voice and a grandmother who filled my heart with her beautiful songs, I learned at an early age that I could use my voice to lift a soul and bring joy to all who hear me sing.
An early focus on R&B ballads and an appreciation for the art and craft of the late Donna Summer, I developed and presented legend shows featuring many of Donna's favorites. While still a staple in my repertoire, I find my audiences equally enjoy my variety of pop, soft rock, and the occasional 'torch' song to create the right mood at the right time. My song-list spans six decades with the appropriate stage presence and performance to match the audience and venue.
Currently, I've added a variety of country songs to the delight of audiences not accustomed to hearing an African American female sing tunes straight out of Nashville.
With music in my blood and songs in my heart, I continue to seek out audiences of all ages who enjoy melodies from different eras and appreciate the pioneers and contemporaries who brought them to us. While my song-list is ever-evolving, my desire to share my gift with others remains constant. It is this desire that keeps me singing and to instill in others the joy of music.
