Pioneering the disco era, Donna Summer had unique beats and melodies that changed the face of music. Dubbed the Queen of Disco, she climbed the music charts and had 14 top-ten singles, including "Hot Stuff," "Bad Girls" and "She Works Hard for the Money," making her one of the most prolific singer-songwriters of her era. 

Now fans can see Summer as never before with the release of the HBO Original Love to Love You, Donna Summer. Directed by Oscar and Emmy-winner Roger Ross William and the daughter of Summer, Brooklyn Sudano, this documentary combines intimate footage and interviews from those closest to her.

In this personal portrait, viewers will get to see into the life of Summer, on and off the stage.


While many are familiar with her on-stage persona — a dazzling presence that could entertain the biggest crowds — few know what she was really like under it all. This documentary aims to give us a look into the relationships she formed and the bonds she had with her family. In the preview we hear Summer say, "I have a secret life. You're looking at me, but what you see is not what I am." Going on to explain that on stage she isn't singing, but rather acting.

When watching this documentary, you'll finally get to see the woman behind the music.
