Rainere Martin (Donna Summer)
Blessed by God with the gift of voice and a grandmother who filled my heart with her beautiful songs, Rainere Martin learned at an early age that she could use my voice to lift a soul and bring joy to all who hear her sing.
With an early focus on R&B ballads and an appreciation for the art and craft of the late Donna Summer, she developed and presented legend shows featuring many of Donna’s favorites. While still a staple in her repertoire, she finds her audiences equally enjoy my variety of pop, soft rock, and the occasional ‘torch’ song to create the right mood at the right time. Her song-list spans six decades with the appropriate stage presence and performance to match the audience and venue.
Currently she’s added a variety of country songs to the delight of audiences not accustomed to hearing an African American female sing tunes straight out of Nashville.
With music in her blood and songs in her heart, she continues to seek out audiences of all ages who enjoy melodies from different eras and appreciate the pioneers and contemporaries who brought them to us. While her song-list is ever evolving, her desire to share her gift with others remains constant. It is this desire that keeps her singing and to instill in others the joy of music.
