The recent death of Donna Summer, the undisputed "Queen of Disco", took everybody by surprise. Her dance classics ("Love to Love You Baby", "I Feel Love", "Last Dance", "Hot Stuff", "Bad Girls", "On The Radio", "She Works Hard For The Money"...) are timeless and inspired the music of many artists (Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Beyoncé...). I really miss her.
Celebrities reacted to the sad news. Patty Brard posted a message on her Facebook page and also wrote this tweet: "We've lost an Icon....RIP Donna Summer".
Summer's glory era in the late 1970's coincided with Luv's heyday. The Diva and the Girl Group scored their greatest hits on the same charts simultaneously. When Patty lived in Los Angeles, CA in the 1980's and recorded three solo albums, she worked with some of the top session musicians (including Paul Jackson Jr, Jai Winding and Trevor Veitch...) who collaborated previously with Donna.
