R.I.P. Donna Summer

The Queen of Disco, Donna Summer passed away today, after losing her battle with breast cancer at 63 years old. She was without a doubt, the biggest star of the Disco era. Some of her hits include “Last Dance”, “Bad Girls”, “Hot Stuff”, “She Works Hard For The Money” and many more and she is the first artist to have 3 consecutive double albums go to #1 on the U.S. Billboard chart. She is a music legend and her legacy will live on for a long time to come. Disco is what helped to shape modern Pop music and without Disco and her as the most influential artist of the genre, music would have been very different over the course of the past 40 years or so and on. I grew up listening to her songs with my Mother, who was a big Disco and Donna Summer fan growing up. R.I.P. Donna Summer.
