Donna’s popularity heightened in 1963 when, at the age of sixteen, she was selected to be the first and only “Dr Pepper Girl.” She promoted the soft-drink company for five years on the radio, in a huge billboard campaign, magazines and personal appearances. One could not pass through any city without seeing the captivating image of the young beauty gracing the streets.

Her big break catapulted her to bigger screens, namely five prominent singing/acting roles in popular teen motion pictures including Bikini Beach, Muscle Beach Party, Pajama Party, Sergeant Deadhead, and Beach Blanket Bingo alongside Frankie Avalon, Annette Funicello, Tommy Kirk, Deborah Walley and many other popular stars.
Donna also appeared on numerous iconic television shows throughout the sixties, including roles in Batman, The Monkees, The Red Skelton Show, Gomer Pyle, Milton Berle and Hollywood A Go Go. She was also the featured female vocalist on the wildly popular weekly ABC show Shindig.
After Shindig, Donna appeared with Bobby Rydell as a regular on The Milton Berle Show. By the end of the swinging decade, Donna had released 20 singles and the LP soundtrack from “Beach Blanket Bingo”. A CD entitled “The Very Best of Donna Loren: Beach Blanket Bingo” was released by Collectables Records in 2000 and is still in distribution.
Donna's new music CD is entitled "Love It Away".
