    Not really my genre of music, but she was great, very talented. And hot in the 70's.

    I have her VH1 live CD and when I listen to it, quite frequently, I'm always struck by how rockish her songs were rather than true disco. Today's youngins' should take note. This is how you sing.

    Very Sad. She lives on in her music. She was one of the MOTOWN Greats! Only 63! Too young.

    I am sitting here with tears streaming down my face in hearing of Donna Summers death. Her music was such a part of my childhood and although I never met her, I feel as is I have lost a very dear friend. It all just seems so unreal. Thoughts and prayers to her family & friends.
