A Reflection on Donna Summers

The internet is buzzing today with the news that 70s Disco Queen Donna Summers died today. At the peak of her fame she produced hit after hit that fueled the sounds and culture of the disco scene. Some of that scene wasn’t worth fueling though. As the Holy Spirit began to work on her, she experienced a “radical life change” (Rom. 2:4, Message) in the early 80s. Janie and I were familiar with her new history as she began to rewrite it – part of it was launched out of the West LA Vineyard where we worked at the time. Ms. Summers sensed a calling from God to return to the places of influence where she’d made an impact for sin in the 70s and build a build a bridge of holiness toward Jesus.

I lost track of her progress after a few years but am aware she launched well. God loves a changed heart. Here’s to moldable hearts.

“Precious in the sight of the Lord, is the death of His saints.” Ps. 116:15, NKJV
