Rainere Martin learned at an early age that she could use her voice to lift a soul and bring joy to all who hear her sing. Being a huge fan of the 70’s era, the music of Donna Summer has always been a part of her soul.
While Donna Summer will always be a staple in her repertoire, Rainere also finds that audiences enjoy her 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. She has recently 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, Rainere 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. But regardless how far her musical explorations take her, Rainere attests that, “There will always be a Donna Summer down deep inside me that will come through in every performance”.
Her performances to date have been electrifying audiences with her uncanny resemblance to Donna’s style, grace, energy, and of course, voice.
