Mini Bio (2)
Donna Summer rocketed to international super-stardom in the mid-1970s when her groundbreaking merger of R&B, soul, pop, funk, rock, disco and avant-garde electronica catapulted underground dance music out of the clubs of Europe to the pinnacles of sales and radio charts around the world.
Maintaining an unbroken string of hits throughout the 70s and 80s, most of which she wrote, Donna holds the record for most consecutive double albums to hit #1 on the Billboard charts (3) and first female to have four #1 singles in a 12 month period; 3 as a solo artist and one as a duo with Barbra Streisand. A five-time Grammy winner, Donna Summer was the first artist to win the Grammy for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Female (1979, « Hot Stuff ») as well as the first-ever recipient of the Grammy for Best Dance Recording (1997, « Carry On »).
In 2004, she became one of the first inductees, as both an Artist Inductee and a Record Inductee (for 1977’s « I Feel Love ») into the Dance Music Hall of Fame in New York City.
Born Donna Gaines on New Year’s Eve to a large family in Boston, she developed an early interest in music.
From the age of eight, Summer sang in church choirs and city-wide choruses, and by her early twenties, was performing in musical theatre in Germany, winning parts in such highly-acclaimed shows as « Hair, » « Showboat, » « Godspell, » and « Porgy and Bess » as well as performing with the Viennese Folk Opera. She released her first single, a cover of the Jaynett’s girl group classic, « Sally Go Round The Roses, » in 1971.
While singing backup, she met producers Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte who produced her first single, « Hostage, » which became a hit in the Netherlands, France and Belgium.
In 1975, Moroder and Bellotte produced the international hit, « Love to Love You Baby, » which rose to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and triggered Summer’s triumphant return to the United States as a key figure of the then-emerging disco genre. « Love To Love You Baby » paved the way for such international hits as « MacArthur Park, » « Bad Girls, » « Hot Stuff, » « Dim All The Lights, » « On The Radio, » and « Enough Is Enough, » as well as the Grammy and Academy award winning theme song « Last Dance, » from the film « Thank God It’s Friday, » which remains a milestone in Donna’s career.
In 1980, Summer became the first artist to sign with David Geffen’s new label, Geffen Records, leaving her disco days behind and moving into the next phase of her career . »
In the years that followed, Summer collaborated with writers and producers such as Quincy Jones, Michael Omartian and England’s dance-pop production compound Stock Aitken Waterman and produced a steady stream of hits from « State of Independence, » featuring Michael Jackson on backing vocals, to the abiding feminist anthem « She Works Hard For The Money, » one of the most-played songs of all-time, and the infectious « This Time I Know It’s For Real. »
In 1994, she released « Endless Summer, » a greatest hits retrospective containing a new song, « Melody of Love, » which became Billboard’s #1 Dance Record of the Year.
She also released the critically acclaimed gem « Christmas Spirit, » a collection of Summer’s original songs and holiday standards recorded with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra.
Summer spent the ’90s continuing to tour, performing to sold-out audiences worldwide.
In 1997, when the new « Best Dance Recording » Category was created at the Grammy Awards, Donna Summer was the first winner with her fifth career Grammy award for « Carry On. »
In 1999, Sony/Epic Records released « VH1 Presents Donna Summer: Live & More – Encore!, » an album and DVD of Summer’s critically acclaimed VH1 broadcast taped at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom.
The show premiered on VH1 as one of the network’s highest rated shows to date and featured live performances of Summer’s top hits.
In addition to her five Grammy Awards, Summer has won six American Music Awards, three consecutive #1 platinum double albums (she’s the only solo artist, male or female, ever to accomplish this), 11 gold albums, four #1 singles on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart, 3 platinum singles, and 12 gold singles.
Summer is also the first female artist to have a #1 single and #1 album on the Billboard charts simultaneously (« Live & More; » « MacArthur Park » 1978) a feat she also repeated six months later (« Bad Girls » & « Hot Stuff » in 1979).
She has charted 33 Top Ten hits on the combined Billboard Disco/Dance/Dance Club/Play charts over a period of 37 years with 18 reaching the #1 spot solidifying her as the undisputed Queen of Dance.
In addition to her recording and performing career, Summer is an accomplished visual artist whose work has been shown at exhibitions worldwide including Steven Spielberg’s « Starbright Foundation Tour of Japan » and The Whitney Museum as well as a prestigious engagement at Sotheby’s in New York.
Since 1989, she has sold over 1.7 million dollars in original art – with her highest piece going for $150,000. In 2003, Random House published her autobiography « Ordinary Girl, » co-authored with Marc Eliot. Also that year, Universal released « The Journey, » containing all of her original hits, as well as two new songs.
In 2008, celebrating four decades of milestones, Summer adds another accomplishment to her list with the success of her new album « Crayons. »
The album debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart making it Summer’s highest debuting album ever. It also debuted at #5 on the Billboard R&B chart – another personal best.
« Crayons » is Summer’s first album of all new studio material in 17 years and is her highest charting album since « She Works Hard For The Money » in 1983.
To date, the album has spawned three #1 Dance hits « I’m A Fire, » « Stamp Your Feet » and « Fame (The Game). »
It is estimated that Summer has sold more than 130 million records worldwide.
Ranked #24 on Billboard Magazines 50th Anniversary issue’s « Hot 100 Artists of All Time, » Donna Summer was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame on April 18, 2013 in Los Angeles.

Our first shooting took place in Crimea (while its still has been an Ukrainian territory) and finished in Peruvian part of the Amazon and Sacred Valley near Cusco. Some parts of the film have been filmed by them before our meeting, yet most of it been intentionally captured for the upcoming art piece.

Birth Name Ella Jane Fitzgerald
Nicknames The First Lady of Song
The First Lady of Jazz
The Queen of Jazz
Lady Ella

On Saturday, June 15th, 1996, an era in jazz singing came to an end, with the death of Ella Fitzgerald at her home in California. She was the last of four great female jazz singers (including Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, and Carmen McRae) who defined one of the most prolific eras in jazz vocal style. Ella had extraordinary vocal skills from the time she was a teenager, and joined the Chick Webb Orchestra in 1935 when she was 16 years old. With an output of more than 200 albums, she was at her sophisticated best with the songs of Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, of George Gershwin, and of Cole Porter. Her 13 Grammy awards are more than any other jazz performer, and she won the Best Female Vocalist award three years in a row. Completely at home with up-tempo songs, her scat singing placed her jazz vocals with the finest jazz instrumentalists, and it was this magnificent voice that she brought to her film appearances. Her last few years, during which she had a bout with congestive heart failure and suffered bilateral amputation of her legs from complications of diabetes, were spent in seclusion.

Nina Simone: 1- Feeling Good / 2 – Ain’t Got No, I Got Life / 3 – Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood / Etta James: 1- At Last / 2- I Just Want To Make Love To You

Nina Simone

Birth Name Eunice Kathleen Waymon

Music Genre Blues, Rhythm’n’blues, Soul, Gospel, Crooner, Pop Jazz, Jazz Blues, Vocal Jazz

Active Years Since 1933
Eunice Kathleen Waymon is ten years old when she gives her first piano concert in the small town of Tryon, North Carolina, where she was born in 1933.

Rightly justifiably proud, his working parents settled in the front row to listen to their daughter (they have seven other children). But they are moved to the bottom, to make room for whites.

This event is founder, the little Eunice conceives a dull rage which will make it rise to the crenel during the fight for the civil rights, and which will leave it revolted forever. That day, she refuses to play until we have reinstated her parents in their proper place, and never again, she will not let herself be, even if life will not always be sweet.

At age eight, she discovers the piano at church and then takes paid lessons from her mother’s employer as a housekeeper, who has heard of her gift. At age 17, she moved to Philadelphia where she taught piano lessons and accompanied singers, to finance her studies as a classical musician at the prestigious Juilliard School Of Music in New York. But when you are Black, she realizes it, the task is even more difficult.

It is in Atlantic City, where she auditioned to sing in a restaurant, that the boss strongly suggests, if she wants the place, to sing at the same time as she plays. We are in 1954 and, so that her mother, fervent Methodist, ignores that she plays the « music of the devil », she chooses a pseudonym: Nina, which means little girl in Spanish, and Simone in tribute to the actress French Gold Helmet. In this bar, she plays jazz, blues, a little classical, and gradually forges a network of spectators, who follow from club to club. It was in 1958 that she recorded her first album, a cover of « Porgy & Bess », whose good reception allowed her to sign with the small label Bethlehem Records.

She recorded her first album, Little Girl Blue, with Jimmy Bond on bass and Tootie Heath on drums. Totally inexperienced, she gives up all rights to his label in exchange for $ 3,000. The future rights of the only « My Baby Just Cares For Me » would have earned him a million, after Chanel chose this song to illustrate a spot in the 80s, bringing it up to date …

She then signs with Colpix Records, a bigger label, which gives her full freedom in the selection and production of her songs. She released between 1959 and 1964 nine albums at Colpix, including six live and a compilation: at that time, Nina Simone continues and studies and dreams of classical instrument, and she sings pop to make a living. These albums are traditional anthologies, (« House of the Rising Sun » which she takes again two years before The Animals and Bob Dylan), of standards that she redraws of her touch, with some personal compositions. She also devotes an entire album to her versions of Duke Ellington’s tracks.

But in 1964, in full civil rights movement, his activism is reactivated and reinforced by the political situation and his associates. She then signs with Philips, and on her first album for the then Dutch brand, Nina Simone In Concert, she ends with a protest song from her hand, « Mississipi Goddam », a tribute to the murdered civil rights activist Medgar Evers and a denunciation churches (and children) burned by members of the Ku Klux Klan, Birmingham, Alabama.

Released singles, the song will be boycotted in many southern US states. Having become a rare diva, both politically and artistically, by her talent and attitude, Nina Simone is pursuing a career marked by her commitments, with six albums at Philips. She sings in meetings, puts together feminist songs, takes up the mythical « Strange Fruit » by Billie Holiday, and dedicates her art to the defense of the rights of her people. She writes, with the African-American poet Langston Hughes (a friend), « Backlash Blues », for her first album at RCA, in 1967, Nina Simone Sings The Blues. At RCA, there are eight albums (including two live) that she will produce, until 1974, with many key songs: « Young Gifted & Black », on the 1970 album Black Gold (which will be taken over by Donny Hathaway and by Aretha Franklin), and this perpetual gravity that makes Nina Simone not an entertainer but a true artist with unparalleled depth.

In the early 1970s, Nina Simone’s life became complicated. She leaves her country to settle in Barbados for a while. But her husband-manager then takes this for a way of divorce! So she has no idea how her business is (or is not) managed, and when she comes back In the United States, she realizes that she is facing prosecution for unpaid taxes. She then fled to Barbados, where she resided for a few years, having a love affair with Prime Minister Erroll Barrow. Then, at the invitation of her friend Miriam Makeba, she moved to Liberia, then she will live in Switzerland, Holland before settling in southern France in 1992, in Carry-Le-Rouet, in the Bouches-du-Rhone. After her last album for RCA, It’s Finished, in 1974, she waits four years before being convinced to record again, for a small jazz label. Then, she will continue, year in year out, to release records, including several live, since she still plays on stage for a public fascinated by his aura of diva. Her latest studio album, A Single Woman, at Elektra, dates from 1993. If Nina Simone keeps the image of a lone artist, flayed alive, its impact has been phenomenal over several generations. For proof, we will quote the samples chosen in recent years by Timbaland, Common, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Talib Kweli or will.i.am (Black Eyed Peas) in his repertoire, to build their songs. She was a major performer, appropriating standards with such strength that she made them his own, even in French, his version of « Do not leave me » Jacques Brel is unavoidable. As a high priestess of soul, she has touched all genres, folk, jazz, blues, classical, with equal happiness. It has dramatically influenced many of today’s artists, from Mary J. Blige (who is expected to perform in a biopic planned for 2009) to Alicia Keys or Lauryn Hill, but also had a very strong impact on John Lennon or Jeff Buckley. On stage, she was an outstanding performer, throwing herself into fiery monologues. As for her songs, they appear in the credits of dozens of films. After this sometimes chaotic life (suffering from a mental disorder, she could become aggressive and shot once on the son of a neighbor who disturbed his concentration, another once upon a record company employee that she suspected of impropriety on her royalties), that devouring rage against injustice (she was partisan of a hard revolution, and opposed to the pacifism of Martin Luther King, to whom she returned yet often tribute), Nina Simone will have marked the twentieth century, and inscribed his name to the pantheon of major artists. She died on April 21, 2003, in her village of Carry-le-Rouet, near Aix-en-Provence, breast cancer at the age of 70 years. His ashes will be scattered in various African countries.

Born January 25, 1938 in Los Angeles, California, Jamesetta Hawkins is delighted by the choir of the Baptist Church in her neighborhood where she sings at five. Her talent is not long in touring the city, she takes classes with Professor James Earle Hines and sings on the radio.

In 1950, based in San Francisco, she joined a vocal group with two of her sisters when singer Johnny Otis noticed her and auditioned her. His debut recording for the Modern label in 1954, « Roll With Me, Henry, » is a response to Hank Ballard and the Midnighters’ Work With Me Annie. Under pressure from the radio, he is renamed « Wallflower » (No. 1 R & B) and Otis changes the name of the artist in Etta James, accompanied by his choristers, The Peaches.

Etta James continues singing alone or accompanied by Maxwell Davis saxophone or Lee Allen according to the studio; she successively engraves « Good Rockin ‘Daddy » and feminists « W-O-M-A-N » and « Tough Lover » in New Orleans. Acquired by Chess for her label in 1960, Etta James sings duet with boyfriend Harvey Fuqua (The Moonglows) and solo (« All I Could Do Was Cry »). In « At Last » or « Trust In Me », his R & B carried by a rough voice is tempered by cascades of violins. Recorded in 1961, his cover of Muddy Waters’ « I Just Want To Make Love To You » will be a hit thirty-five years later via an advertisement for Pepsi. Then came « Something’s Got a Hold on Me » in 1962, the live album Etta James Rocks The House (1963) and the blues « In the Basement » in 1966.

In 1967, the fire-loving singer achieved her greatest success with « Tell Mama » recorded at Rick Hall’s Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The future classic, which reaches 23rd place on pop charts, is followed three years later by « I’ve Found Love ». Etta James stays at Chess until 1975, then signs for Warner the album Deep In The Night (1978) before continuing with MCA and Changes (1980), produced by Allen Toussaint.

After a few years of dealing with drugs, Etta James returns in 1986 with the live Late Show, accompanied by saxophonist Eddie « Cleanhead » Vinson. In 1988, she recorded for Iceland the valiant Seven Year Itch, followed by Sticking To My Guns (1990) in country girl and The Right Time (1992) produced by Jerry Wexler for Elektra. The soul singer shows that she has not lost anything of her hoarse and bewitching voice.

After a Christmas album in 1998 (Etta James Christmas), the one called « Miss Peaches » was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame (2001) and received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award (2003). The same year released Let’s Roll, followed by Blues To The Bone (2004) and All The Way (2006). In 2008, the film Cadillac Records that tells the story of Chess, calls on Beyoncé to interpret his role. The compilation Who’s Blue?, Released at Kent in 2011, delivers some rarities.

Suffering from leukemia and dementia senile, Etta James is hospitalized and placed under respiratory assistance in December 2011. The fatal outcome occurs on January 20, 2012 in Riverside (California) where one of the last great blues singers makes the weapons.

Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers_ Iconic dance partners and others incredible performers!

When the two dancers and actors were paired, Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire became the most famous dancing duo ever seen on screen. As they joyfully diverted American audiences during the Great Depression, they refined their choreographies and techniques finding in each other a stimulating partner. Purely a professional relationship, the duo nonetheless created a charismatic spark on films within which the ultimate classy American gentleman encountered the bold and sexy working-class heroine. At a time when a kiss in black and white was of an impertinent eroticism, Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire simply needed well executed gestures to depict sensuality: ‘Of course, Ginger was able to accomplish sex through dance. We told more through our movements instead of the big clinch. We did it all in the dance.’
