Donna Summer Dead: Queen Of Disco Dies At 63

Donna Summer died Thursday morning after a battle with cancer.

Lovingly named the "Queen of Disco," the 63-year-old was in Florida at the time of her death, according to TMZ. Born LaDonna Adrian Gaines, the 5-time Grammy award winner rose to fame in the '70s with hits like "Hot Stuff," "Bad Girls" and "Love to Love You Baby."

TMZ also reports that Summer was working on a forthcoming album at the time of her death.

Summer is survived by her husband, Brooklyn Dreams co-founder Bruce Sudano, their two children -- Brooklyn and Amanda -- and her daughter, Mimi, from a pervious marriage.

This makes me very sad. It would have been tough getting through the late 70s and 80s without her. RIP, Donna.

A icon passes, sad to hear! I remember wild drunken parties! Dancing, drinking and fornicating till the sun came up, listening to Donna Summer and her peers!

Wow this is very sad indeed. I'm not actually from the '80s era (I was born on the late '80s) but I love the '70s and '80s era. She will be missed. RIP Donna.

Wow, I'm bummed. Even her latest album was pretty good. Whitney and Donna Summer in one year...

The Long Hot Summer of the Eighties.
Everything Whitney wanted to be and was not.
You showed them the way.

This is so, so sad.

R.I.P. Donna.

I will always treasure the memories.
