‘Once Upon A Time” Donna Summer emerged. Now Rumour Has It” our disco “Queen For A Day” has died. She passed away too soon Tuesday from cancer. Before this “She Work(ed) Hard For The Money” and stayed until the “Last Dance.” Unlike “Bad Girls “out there, she was unique. When disco died, she continued with hits “This Time I Know Its For Real” and “I Don’t Want To Get Hurt” among others. Her songs and style are timeless.

In true diva form Donna Summer was working on releasing her latest “Crayons.” How far would she have come back, “Heaven Knows.” But I know she deserves a tribute in true Donna Summer form. Rest in Peace Donna Summer “Happily Ever After.”
