But that’s not all, Disco queen Donna Summer whose awesome voice defined the 70s disco era with hits such as “Last Dance” and “Love to Love You Baby” died of cancer at the age of 63.  She passed away surrounded by her family in Naples, Florida but no details as to what type of cancer caused her death.
