Donna Summer died this morning after a battle with cancer. She was 63.

The singer was in Florida at the time of her death, according to reports.

Known as the Queen of Disco, Donna Summer was said to be trying to keep the extent of her illness under wraps. Just a few weeks ago, people close to her say she was focused on trying to finish up an album she had been working on.

Summer was a five-time Grammy winner who rose to fame with hits - "Last Dance," "Hot Stuff" and "Bad Girls" - that were synonymous with the 1970s.

Donna and her producer Giorgio Moroder defined the dance music era of the '70s, influencing acts like Duran Duran, David Bowie and many others.

Summer married Brooklyn Dreams singer Bruce Sudano in 1980. The couple had two daughters together. R.I.P. to one of the greats.

I remembered when I was about "8" years old, I used to lived in South Central Los Angeles by L.A. Coliseum. We had a big house , really big, everyday when bus driver picks me up to go to school, he always plays one of "Donna Summer's" top hit songs "Hot Stuff", "Bad Girls" and other "Motown", "70's" disco, and almost every weekend my parents always throw parties, bar b que's, my dad a big garage, turned it into a sports bar with a pool table and a big jukebox, everybody comes over to play pool and party all night with music , dancing, not only spanish music, but also Motown 70's disco classics like Donna Summer...those were the good old days...Donna Summer will be missed....R.I.P. Donna Summer.

I love her music's, but most of all, I hope she had her life together. Life is like a flower, here today and gone tomorrow, and we all have to go down that path , even those who are harsh with words about people they don't know but run off with rumor's and not fact,God has a way of letting you taste what you issue out b-4 you leave this life. May God blessed her family in this time of loss.

'Bad girl, bad girl you're such a dirty bad girl...' I remember the hoo-ha that track and the whole album caused back in the day... nevertheless I was more than happy to sing along to the risque lyrics! RIP Donna- your legacy and contribution to the 70S/80s will never be forgotten.

Donna Summer has left this earth, but will never be forgotten, not only did I grow up listening to her music, my Mom loved her to and what class. I remember the school dances and whenever one of her songs played everyone got up to dance.I feel bad that I had not thought of her or her music until I heard about her death...Let's all listen to some of her songs in the next few days in her honour and remember how talented she was!!! Heaven has a new angel and her name is Donna. R.I.P.
