Donna Summer, the Queen of Disco, has died at age 63.
TMZ reports that Summer died this morning in Florida after a battle with cancer.
If you had no idea she was ill, as I didn't, sources reportedly say Summer was trying to keep the extent of her illness a secret. And, in fact, she was very recently talking about working on a new album.
Summer won five Grammys and six American Music Awards, and had three multi-platinum albums. Her best-known hits includeGrammy "Hot Stuff," "Bad Girls" and "She Works Hard for the Money."
She is survived by her husband, three daughters, and four grandchildren.
