It was a year ago, today, in which the world lost a true treasure when the Queen, Donna Summer, passed away. In remembrance of her extraordinary singing talent and a lady who had beauty, class, style and great stage presence. These younger female singers should look to you, as an example, because you were the real deal! You were also a smart business woman and handled your business wisely and effectively. Show business is not only about talent and you recognized how important the other side of it was, as well. I am glad the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is honoring you this month. I only wish you were here to be able to accept it (Lord knows I voted so many times for you to be inducted into it). However, I know you are beaming with joy, as your fans are, too. I am so glad I got to see you in concert live, back in 2008. What an awesome performance! You were not only a great singer/entertainer but also a caring & loving mother, wife, relative, friend, etc. I have been a fan since I was a child and will always be one. I listen to your music all the time and your music shall endure for eternity. I saw a couple of shows recently which showcased the Disco era. Let's be very clear....Donna Summer is the ONLY Queen of Disco and there is no other that shall ever hold this title!! She was a global sensation who helped usher Disco onto the radio stations and into nightclubs because of the demand for her recordings and live appearances all over the world. No other female shall ever upstage her role during the Disco era.......bar none! Rest in Peace, Queen, and you will forever be missed.
