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."
I had such great memories associated with her music... I was in Jr. High in the 70's and remember dancing and skating to her music. I loved "Love to
love you" There were several songs that Donna Summer refused to sing again after becoming a Christian, and my favorite was one of them. She was an
amazing woman.. RIP Donna Summer!!
