What better news than this? So long in coming; so well deserved. Contactmusic is reporting that Donna Summer, uber-diva, will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.
Artists become eligible 25 years after the domestic release of their first commercial full-length record.
"We are overjoyed the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame has recognized Donna's tremendous musical achievements. Its an honor we know she quietly hoped for and would very much cherish. We are deeply grateful." - The Family of Donna Summer
"The family cannot fully express the gratitude they feel for the outpouring of love received over the past few months in support of Donna's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. From fellow recording artists and industry executives to friends and fans from around the world, it will not be forgotten." - Brian Edwards, Enter Talking Client Relations
