From her first step on stage through her medley of disco hits, Rainere Martin portrays all that was magical of the beautiful and talented Donna Summer’s legendary career. Rainere learned at an early age that she could use her voice to lift up souls and bring joy to all who heard her sing. With an initial focus on R&B ballads, an appreciation for artists of all eras, and a desire to find her right niche, Martin’s early explorations had her performing in theater, music videos, motion pictures and television. However, it was the musical pulse of the 70s and Donna Summer—the era’s great headliner—that stuck in her memory. She explains, “It was a realization that I just didn’t sing Donna’s songs, I felt them.” Martin’s performances electrify audiences with her uncanny resemblance to Donna’s style, grace, energy, and of course, voice.
