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.
