Donna Summer, The Queen Of Disco, And Always A Great Interview!

Donna Summer, dead apparently after a battle with lung cancer at her Florida home, Thursday morning at age 63!

Donna’s family released a statement, saying they “are at peace celebrating her extraordinary life and her continued legacy.” Donna was reportedly working on a new album, and was trying to keep her cancer battle quiet. Several sources are saying Donna believed she contracted cancer by inhaling toxic particles after the 9/11 attack in New York City.

The 5-Time Grammy winner pictured with me above in 1977 as I presented her with a gold record for “I Feel Love”, her second Top 10 hit in 1977 that began a streak of over a dozen the next 6 years.

She also racked up 19 number 1 dance hits between 1975 and 2008, second only to Madonna. She was the Queen of Disco and a great interview! Hear more on my weekend & daily syndicated shows!

Below, an audio clip from one of my last interviews with Donna Summer.

    That’s sad to learn that she obtained that cancer fromt he after effects of 9/11 (I’m sure there are many others unfortunately who have gotten cancer because of that event). She says in that interview that “she can be a ‘Bad Girl’ or “naughty” and throughout my journey I’ve also learned that it’s “okay to be naughty”; people just have to “lighten up” and let go of their “hang ups and inhibitions about things”. Shouldn’t have to live with them forever (choices rigrht?). There are “always” ways to overcome them if people want to (not just about sex, but other things as well!).

    Sharing is caring and caring is sharing; living is giving and giving is living
