Donna Summer died Thursday morning after a battle with cancer.

Lovingly named the “Queen of Disco,” the 63-year-old was in Florida at the time of her death, according to TMZ. Born LaDonna Adrian Gaines, the 5-time Grammy award winner rose to fame in the ’70s with hits like “Hot Stuff,” “Bad Girls” and “Love to Love You Baby.”

Summer was working on a forthcoming album at the time of her death. The singer is survived by her husband, Brooklyn Dreams co-founder Bruce Sudano, their two children — Brooklyn and Amanda — and her daughter, Mimi, from a pervious marriage.
