Default Donna Summer passed away:(

Donna Summers passed away at 63 today...How sad. She was a year behind me in our high school, but, left to pursue her show business career. She worked hard for the money! She will be missed...RIP

It is very sad, and she will be missed, but I had heard she was very sick, so her family must feel some relief she is without pain now.

I just read she suffered from lung cancer..This in part from TMZ:

Several sources are telling us Donna believed she contracted it by inhaling toxic particles after the 9/11 attack in New York City.

I thought she had lived for many years, in Germany. What a talent she was;(

Love to love you baby! Rest in peace. Such an amazing talent will be missed. She could sing live and sound incredible. Not many pop singers today can say that. Plus the shoes in this video are wow.

I'm not sure how many people remember the movie "thank god it's friday." But it was the film in which Donna Summer sang "Last dance." I remember seeing it in the movie theater with my mom and sister. Female bonding time. Stick with this video I know it's pretty long.

Okay last one. I just loved the range of her voice. She sounds good singing high or low. Not many singers can say that.

My nieces picked up her music as my sister and I listened in the car. They were little and would always be singing "toot toot hayy beep beep." That is such a fond memory. She left so many of us with fond memories with her music.
RIP Donna
