Donna Summer dies from lung & breast cancer related illness
Sad to see that Donna Summer has lost her battle with multiple cancers. More than many, she was evocative of a whole era, that of disco and I still remember her lovely red beret and stylish presentation. She was a woman who sang with enormous strength and marked a definite change from the submissive to the dominatrix in her vocals. Markers of their time such as Donna Summer are rare. She and Travolta and the Beegees almost were a human glitter-ball for the disco era reflecting the joy of the dancers and singers who would flock to the venues to ape the best moves, including the skyward point, an ungodly Tebow gesture!
