The music industry loses another legend as Donna Summer known as the Queen of Disco has died aged just 63 of breast cancer at her home in Florida. She was best known for her up-tempo hits including, "She Works Hard for the Money", "Hot Stuff" and "Last Dance", and her classic disco song' I feel love' which she is seen performing here.
Celeb singers attending "A Great Night In Harlem," an annual benefit concert hosted by The Jazz Association of America, including Bono, and producer Quincy Jones, all paid their respects to the iconic singer.
"Her version of 'State of Independence' is, you know, in my sort of top five. So if I have one thing to say about Donna Summer, if anyone who hasn't heard "State of Independence," I'm not sure there is anyone, but if there anyone out there who hasn't, put that on."
Summer, who was born in Boston, Massachusetts, won six American Music Awards as well as five Grammy Awards for her contribution to music during the 1970s and 1980s.Flowers and tributes were laid next to her Hollywood walk of fame star.
Emotional fans paid their tributes.
"I still can't I believe it. You know, her, Whitney, you know Michael, they were such a big part of my life and to hear that they are no longer physically going to be with us is, you know, really hard."
It was left to soul singer Roberta Flack to sum up the Donna Summer's legacy.
"I think we've lost a wonderful, wonderful source of 'feel good,' you know? There's a lot of talent in the world, but there's not a lot of 'feel good.' And Donna Summer was, 'I love to love you, baby.' What could be more positive than that?"
Indeed what can can be more positive than love? RIP Donna Summer.
