Dorchester native and disco queen Donna Summer died this morning after her battle with cancer.
We’re told Summer was in Florida at the time of her death. She was 63-years-old.
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.”
Summer and her producer defined the dance music era of the ’70s and influenced acts like Duran Duran and David Bowie to enter the genre.
Summer married Brooklyn Dreams singer Bruce Sudano back in 1980. They had two daughters together.
103.3 WODS Boston will be playing Summer’s hits throughout the day and taking requests, as well as featuring a full hour of her music at 7pm tonight.
