Electronic Disco Music Diva Donna Summer Dies at 63

Written by v on May 17, 2012 – 11:00 pm -

In sad news, Donna Summer lost her life to lung cancer earlier today at the age of 63. Born into an African-American family from Boston Massachusetts, she started singing in church choir groups before progressing into musicals, psychedelic rock and finally achieving great fame in the disco music era of the 70’s.

For me, her greatest work was from her collaboration with Italian producer and electronic music pioneer Giorgio Moroder, with whom she made her classic and highly influential hit “I Feel Love” [1977] and the lesser known “With Your Love” from the “Thank God It’s Friday” soundtrack [1978].

I Feel Love:

With Your Love:

Her other big hits include “Love to Love You Baby” [1975], “Hot Stuff” [1979], “Last Dance” [1978] and the post-disco “She Works Hard for the Money” [1983]
