Disco balls of days gone by: Mourning the loss of Donna Summer
Rene LynchIt's been decades since Donna Summer ruled the airwaves. But her loyal followers made clear Thursday morning that she was still the Queen of Disco.
Summer, 63, died early Thursday morning, reportedly following a protracted battle with cancer. Her family issued a statement that said, in part: "While we grieve her passing, we are at peace celebrating her extraordinary life and her continued legacy. Words truly can't express how much we appreciate your prayers and love for our family at this sensitive time."
On Twitter, celebrities and fans poured out their hearts in grief, and posted photos of the sexy singer with her gravity-defying curls, luscious lips and mega-watt smile. "Rest in Peace dear Donna Summer. Your voice was the heartbeat and soundtrack of a decade," music mogul Quincy Jones tweeted.
