Her family confirmed her death in a statement which said "we are at peace celebrating her extraordinary life and her continued legacy."
"Words truly can’t express how much we appreciate your prayers and love for our family at this sensitive time," the statement continued.
Donna Summer was probably best known for her popular disco songs "I Feel Love," "Last Dance" and "MacArthur Park". "I Feel Love" became a top 10 single in 1977 and her disco interpretation of the ballad "MacArthur Park" in 1978 was her first number one song. "Last Dance" from the Thank God It’s Friday soundtrack earned Summer her first of 5 Grammy Awards.
Hopefully, she will live on in the hearts of many because of her music. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Donna Summer’s family and friends and we hope that the plan some type of public memorial for Donna Summer because she loves her fans and probably would want them at her funeral service.
