DONNA SUMMER DIES AT 63


US singer Donna Summer, famous for disco classics including I Feel Love and Love To Love You Baby, has died at the age of 63.
Summer was one of disco's biggest stars and also had a huge influence on the synth pop and dance music scenes.
Her family said they were "at peace celebrating her extraordinary life and her continued legacy".
Stars including Kylie Minogue, Sir Elton John and Mary J Blige have paid tribute.
R&B singer Blige said on Twitter that Summer was "truly a game changer", while producer Quincy Jones said her voice "was the heartbeat and soundtrack of a decade".

Summer, who was reported to have had cancer, had been living in Florida with her husband Bruce Sudano.
Minogue described her as "one of my earliest musical inspirations", while Dionne Warwick said she was sad to lose a great performer and "dear friend".
A statement from her family said: "Early this morning, we lost Donna Summer Sudano, a woman of many gifts, the greatest being her faith.
"While we grieve her passing, 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."
