Donna's dance numbers brought her the most fame and fortune but her slow songs were incredible to me, too, because they illustrated how terrific her voice was. My all-time favorite tune of hers is, FORGIVE ME. It was a track on her Cats Without Claws album. The song's message was incredible, but the sound of her voice truly made the song iconic for me. I distinctly recall playing the song during a performance I created for the entire, sophomore class while I was a student at Wabash College. I have it on a loop right now as I type. The song's meaning is as relevant today as it was when I first heard it in 1984.
LaDONNA ADRIAN GAINES, you may have taken your last breath, but your sensational music lives on so that your death will not be the world's LAST DANCE!
