Legendary disco singer Donna Summer died Thursday after a battle with cancer, sources close to the singer confirmed to FoxNews.com.

Summer, 63, was a 5-time Grammy winner whose hits dominated the charts in the 1970s. Her songs like “Last Dance,” “Bad Girls” and “Hot Stuff” were among the decade’s most successful.

She continued topping charts into the 1980s, with hits like “She Works Hard for the Money” and“This Time I Know It’s for Real.”

She is survived by her husband, singer and producer Bruce Sudano, their daughters, Brooklyn and Amanda and Summer's daughter, Mimi, from a previous marriage.

That's so sad. I really liked her. Last Dance always makes me think of the dances we had in high school after every home b-ball game.

From what I understand she didn't even want to be involved with disco. Oh well, guess you follow the dough. It certainly worked for her.

Not many people know I was her muse for Love to Love You Baby. Bye Donna.

I was a big fan of her music...starting with Enough is Enough, which she sang with Barbara Streisand...I danced to "Last Dance" at my 8th grade dance. But my favorite song of her's was MacArthur Park.
