Donna Summer, Queen of Disco, dead at 63 after secret cancer battle

  • Seventies icon understood to have battled lung cancer – ‘diagnosed 10 months ago’
  • ‘Singer believed she contracted illness by inhaling toxic particles after 9/11 attacks’
  • Only told husband and three

“…Hot Stuff singer Donna Summer died this morning aged 63 after a battle with cancer, her family has confirmed.

The Boston-born star, known as the Queen of Disco, passed away in Florida.

The Seventies icon was battling lung cancer, TMZ is reporting, with sources telling the website Donna believed she contracted the illness by inhaling toxic particles after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York.

Her family released a statement, saying Summer died on Thursday morning

It went on: ‘Words truly can’t express how much we appreciate your prayers and love for our family at this sensitive time.’

She had been living in Englewood, Florida, with her husband Bruce Sudano.

The singer will be remembered at a public memorial in Nashville, Tennessee next Wednesday.

Sources told TMZ she had attempted to keep the extent of her illness from fans and was recently trying to finish up her latest album.

According to Entertainment

ET also reports she will be laid to rest in Nashville on Monday following her funeral.

Summers, real name LaDonna Gaines, is best know for her string of 70s hits, including I Feel Love, Last Dance and Bad Girls.

She was a five-time Grammy Award winner and the first artist to have three consecutive double albums reach number one on the US Billboard chart.

She was also the first female artist with four No. 1 singles in a 13-month period, according to the Rock Hall of Fame, where she was a nominee this year.

Summer came to prominence just as disco was burgeoning, and came to define the era with a string of No. 1 hits and her beauty queen looks.

Disco became as much defined by her sultry, sexual vocals – her bedroom moans and sighs – as the relentless, pulsing rhythms of the music itself.

Summers married actor Helmuth Sommer in 1973 before giving birth to the couple’s daughter Mimi later that year.

Although the marriage crumbled in 1975, she kept an altered version of her ex’s surname to use as her stage name. She married Brooklyn Dreams musician Bruce Sudano in 1980 and the couple went on to have two daughters, Brooklyn, born in 1981 and Amanda the following year.

In 1994, the family moved from Los Angeles to Nashville where Donna took time out from showbusiness to focus on painting but had recently returned to the recording studio.

As well has staggering career highs, Summer also endured personal lows.

She suffered serious depression in the wake of September 11 terrorist attacks in New York.

‘I was really freaked out by the horrific experiences of that day,’ Summer, who was at her Manhattan apartment during the 2001 attacks, once said.

‘I couldn’t go out, I didn’t want to talk to anybody. I had to keep the blinds down and stay in my bedroom.’

Friends eventually intervened and the born-again Christian also found strength in her faith. …”

Donna Summer

“…Donna Summer (born LaDonna Adrian Gaines December 31, 1948) [1] is an American singer and songwriter who gained prominence during the disco era of music, earning the title “The Queen of Disco”.

Summer was trained as a gospel singer prior to her introduction to the music industry and has always been known for her “powerhouse” vocal delivery. Though she is most notable for her disco hits, Summer’s repertoire has expanded to include contemporary R&B, rock, pop, and gospel. Summer is one of the most successful recording artists of the 1970s and was the first artist to have three consecutive double albums hit #1 on the Billboard charts. She also became the first female artist to have four number-one singles in a thirteen-month period. Summer’s website claims that she has sold more than 130 million records worldwide.[2]
