DSC_5241_SummerTaking her career to what she calls, “another level of emotion”, Summer Rona has found a way to bring inspiration and hope to others through music.


Summer has been surrounded by music since she was born. Her father, a classical piano player, and her mother, a singer, met each other while performing in a band; and taught Summer to love and appreciate music.  


“I’ve always known that I was supposed to sing, in fact I rarely stop.” Rona said.


She became an instructor of voice by the age of 19 for over sixty students. At the age of 21 she created Summertime Productions, LLC and was able to raise over $100,000 from supporters to help further her career.


Some of her other achievements in life include: releasing an independent CD in ’98, recording over 40 songs for the “American Idol Video Game”, winning a spot on The Fox 17 Morning Show, “Nashville’s American Idol”; airplay on 88.3FM and 950AM, and being cheered by the crowd as a finalist in Kappa Sigma Fraternity’s, “Apollo Night”. She had the opportunity to sing with Larry Henley (Wind Beneath My Wings), Buzz Cason (Everlasting Love) & Dobie Gray (Drift Away) for the Ray Peterson Benefit Concert. She worked with Lee Greenwood as a featured soloist & backup singer in Pigeon Forge, TN and also performed in Venezuela, Israel, Disney World, and throughout major venues in the United States.


She was able to study under the Recording Industry Program at Middle Tennessee State University, where she met members of her soulful R&B band, and performed in selected venues throughout Nashville.


Summer credits much of her success to her family and musical influences such as; Janet & Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, The Fugees, 2Pac, Aretha Franklin, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Aaliyah, India.Arie, Mya, Eryka Badu, Donny Hathaway, & Stevie Wonder.

“Music takes me to another level of emotion. For me, it is spiritual, soulful and deep,” Rona said. “As a writer and performer, I feel responsible to express myself through melodies, arrangements, lyrics, dance and inspired creations. There are endless possibilities”.


Summer continues to stay driven in the music business and plans to stick around for a long time. She is currently performing, writing, co-producing and recording songs to pitch to the major labels. 

“My spirit can’t help but sing. I will continue to surround myself with the best outlets to help create a genuine, unique and appealing album that defines my style, taste and personality,” Rona said. “Through passion, patience and persistence anything is possible.”


So let the music get into your heart, stir up your emotions and take you on a journey through the aura and style of Summer Rona.
