Theballerlife.com just got word that 5-time Grammy winner Donna Summers died this morning after a long battle with cancer.
We’re told Summer was in Florida at the time of her death. She was 63 years old.
Sources close to Summer tell TMZ… the singer was trying to keep the extent of her illness under wraps. We spoke to someone who was with Summer a couple of weeks ago … who says she didn’t seem too bad.
In fact, we’re told she was focused on trying to finish up an album she had been working on.
Summer was a 5-time Grammy winner who shot to superstardom in the ’70s with iconic hits like “Last Dance,” “Hot Stuff” and “Bad Girls.”
She continued her dominance in the ’80s with “She Works Hard for the Money” and “This Time I Know It’s for Real.”
Rest in peace Mrs. Summers.
