The death of disco diva Donna Summer yesterday rocked the music world to its core. Following the news of her passing, a steady stream of tributes have poured in from fans and artists alike. The latest to honor the 70’s megastar is Beyonce – who sampled Summer’s ‘Love To Love You’ on her 2004’s ‘Naughty Girl’.
Her words after the jump…
Donna Summer made music that moved me both emotionally and physically to get up and dance. You could always hear the deep passion in her voice. She was so much more than the queen of disco she became known for, she was an honest and gifted singer with flawless vocal talent. I’ve always been a huge fan and was honored to sample one of her songs. She touched many generations and will be so sadly missed.
My love goes out to her family during this difficult time.
