Donna Summer has received posthumous induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Summer rose to fame in 1976 with the disco hit Love to Love You Baby. She had three number one hits in 1979 with Hot Stuff, Bad Girls and No More Tears (Enough Is Enough), a duet with Barbara Streisand.

The late ‘Queen of Disco’, who passed away at age 63 in May, is among eight stars being inducted into the prestigious Hall of Fame, which pays homage to people who have influenced the music industry.

Other inductees included hip hop pioneers Public Enemy, singer-songwriter Randy Newman, Canadian progressive rockers Rush, rock band Heart and the late blues guitarist Albert King.

Joel Peresman, president and chief executive of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, said in a statement: ‘We are thrilled to announce this year’s class of inductees, which again represents the broad, compelling and significant definition of rock and roll.’

They will be officially inducted at a ceremony in April in Los Angeles.
