This majorly sucks. Makes me feel old. When people think of mindless disco, what Donna Summer sang wasn’t it. She had a terrific set of pipes that could have succeeded in any genre; she happened to flourish in dance and pop music.
The Queen of Disco Donna Summer died Thursday morning from cancer, TMZ reported. She was 63.
Known for belting it out on “Last Dance” and “MacArthur Park,” the singer had been trying to continue making music while keeping her condition secret.
“We spoke to someone who was with Summer a couple of weeks ago … who says she didn’t seem too bad,” TMZ said. “In fact, we’re told she was focused on trying to finish up an album she had been working on. “
