Donna Summer, a five-time Grammy Award winner, died on Thursday morning after losing her battle to cancer, TMZ is reporting. According to the report, the 63-year-old singer was in Florida when she passed away.
Summer first rose to fame in the 1970s disco era with songs like “Last Dance” and “Bad Girls.” (Prior to breaking out on her own, the singer sang back up for Three Dog Night.) In the ’80s, she released a slew of popular albums including She Works Hard for the Money, The Wanderer, and the self-titled Donna Summer Greatest Hits. In 2008, she came out with her first studio album in almost 17 years, called Crayons, which included titles “Stamp Your Feet” and “I’m a Fire.”
Not to mention on reality shows. In recent years, Summer participated as a guest judge on both America’s Got Talent and Platinum Hit, and has seen her songs played on series like So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol. Summer was also the first artist ever to have three back-to-back double albums reach No. 1 on the US Billboard chart. She also boasted four No. 1 singles within a period of 13 months.
