Singer Donna Summer dies aged 63

Donna Summer has died aged 63.

A statement issued on behalf of her family hailed the singer, best known for hits including I Feel Love, as "a woman of many gifts".

It is believed she had been battling cancer.

The full statement read: "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."

Summer, who was born Donna Gaines in Boston, US, learned to sing in church before fronting a series of bands and appearing in musicals.

Working as a session singer brought her into contact with producers Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte and together they established her as one of the biggest acts of the 1970s.

The extended 16-minute version of Love To Love You Baby was a huge hit in the clubs, but was banned from several radio stations because of her suggestive vocal style.

Record producer Pete Waterman, who worked with Summer in the 1980s, said his abiding memory was of "a lovely person". He added: "Whenever you were with her she made you feel so special. She had all the talent but she gave you all the credit. She was not a diva in any shape or form."
