DONNA SUMMER: DISCO DIVA PASSES AWAY AT AGE 63


Donna Summer
Terribly saddened to hear about the passing of Disco Queen Donna Summer, whom at the age of 63 succumbed to a Battle with Cancer. The five-time GRAMMY Winner rose to fame in the mid-'70s, known best for Classics Love to Love You Baby, Hot Stuff, I Feel Love, Bad Girls, MacArthur Park, She Works Hard for the Money and many more. 

Summer can be credited for paving the way for many of today's Dance-Pop Divas into the Mainstream and her influence can be heard in the likes of Kylie Minogue, Madonna, Rihanna and Beyoncé - the latter who sampled Love to Love You Baby with 2003's Naughty Girl.

She is survived by Husband Bruce Sudano and her three Daughters: Amanda, Brookyln and Mimi.

I want to remember Summer for the happy memories her Music gives me. 1989's This Time I Know It's For Real is a personal fave of mine:
