    Donna Summer — the Queen of Disco — died this morning after a battle with cancer … TMZ has learned. 

    We’re told Summer was in Florida at the time of her death. She was 63 years old. 

    Sources close to Summer tell us … the singer was trying to keep the extent of her illness under wraps. We spoke to someone who was with Summer a couple of weeks ago … who says she didn’t seem too bad. 

    In fact, we’re told she was focused on trying to finish up an album she had been working on.  

    Summer was a 5-time Grammy winner who shot to superstardom in the ’70s with iconic hits like “Last Dance,” “Hot Stuff” and “Bad Girls.”



    She continued her dominance in the ’80s with “She Works Hard for the Money” and “This Time I Know It’s for Real.”

    Summer and her producer Giorgio Moroder defined the dance music era of the ’70s and influenced acts like Duran Duran and David Bowie to enter the genre.

    Summer married Brooklyn Dreams singer Bruce Sudano back in 1980. They had two daughters together.

    This is such sad news. I did not even know she was battling cancer. Summer was the most iconic artist to emerge from the disco era. She was underrated partly because of her ties to disco, which is a real shame since she had genuine talent. Her catalog of music is probably much stronger than most would suspect.

    God bless you and her family always!!!

    For a while I think people were underrating Donna Summer but before Whitney, Janet, Mariah, Beyonce or Rihanna she WAS that black female singer who crossed over in a big way. Her influence, style, and sound defined an entire era plus genre of music. Not to mention, she could sing. It’s sad we’re losing so many icons this year.

    Summer denied over and over again that she ever made those remarks against gay people. She sued and got a settlement from New York magazine for printing that she made those comments.

    Eh, I was never convinced that Donna Summer wasn’t a closet homophobe–all that born-again sh!t and whatnot. Still, she created some of the greatest dance music ever–those extended mixes are heavenly, even if Summer’s views weren’t always so.

    I had the pleasure of seeing Donna Summer live
    about 10 years ago at Jones beach theater on Long Island.
    She was a consummate performer who gave a great show
    singing all of her hits and more.. the crowd was dancing the entire
    time and everyone was having a great time on a “SUMMER” night.
    We will miss this true artist and engaging performer.
