Donna Summer Dies at 63

LaDonna Adrian Gaines, widely known by the stage name  'Donna Summer', the Queen of disco, finally gives up the struggle with cancer. The five time Grammy award winner, and the first artist to have three consecutive double albums reach number one on the US Billboard chart died this morning, (May 17, 2012), in her home in Key West Florida. She was born on December 31 (New Year's eve) in Boston Massachusetts.

She began her singing in the church, went on to become a disco singer, and ironically, ended back in the church. She eventually became a born-again Christian sometime in the mid 1980's around when she was cited by some media prints as making anti-gay remarks concerning AIDS.

Goodnight Donna Summer, the Queen of Disco.
