Disco Queen Donna Summer Dead At Age 63
By Wendy Geller

PostsBy Wendy Geller | Stop The Presses! – 26 minutes agoEmailPrintDonna Summer, whom millions of fans revered as "the Queen of Disco," has died at the age of 63 in Florida, the Associated Press has confirmed with the singer's family Thursday morning.
Even if you were not into disco dancing like myself, who didn't love her songs. RIP Ms Summers.

The news comes as a surprise to those who were not aware that she was ill. The legendary superstar was publicly active as recently as last June, when she appeared as a guest panelist on Bravo's music reality show Platinum Hit.

However, a report by TMZ, which initially broke the story, notes that those close to the singer--known for mega-hits including "Last Dance" and "Bad Girls"--revealed she had been trying to hide how sick she was. The exact nature of her illness has not yet been identified. A source said that Summer did not seem to be in that bad of shape two weeks ago.

She is survived by daughters Brooklyn and Amanda, her grown daughters with husband Bruce Sudano, a fellow musician whom she married in 1980, and Mimi, her eldest daughter with first husband, actor Helmuth Sommer.

In addition to her status as a pioneer in the dance music genre, Summer was a five-time Grammy Award winner, the first artist ever to score three back-to-back No. 1 double albums, and was nominated--but not chosen--for induction into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 2010. Her last album, Crayons, was released in 2008.
