    Sad that she lost her battle with cancer, but she's in a better place now. For those who wish to remember her, listen to her 1976 hit she did with disco godfather Giorgio Moredoer called "I Feel Love"... unlike Whitney, Donna could sing!

    Godspeed Donna!

    Put away the mirrored disco ball and dim the dance floor lights a shining star has gone out. Rest in peace Donna Summers you will defiantly be missed. There will be no dancing tonight.

    From what I have heard she had cancer and wanted to keep it under wraps. She was recording an album and was working right until the end.
    She will be greatly missed.

    I know one thing for sure, she is in Heaven with her Lord and Savior now, and that I just loved dancing to her music back in the day. She was so beautiful, and seem to have a lovely personality.
    My condolences to her family and friends.
    R.I.P. Lovely Lady, Donna
    Thank God I have her ‘LPs’ : )

    R.I.P. Donna and thanks for the memories!
