My Favorite Diva Donna Summer has Passed

May 17, 2012 · Posted in Entertainment 

I can close my eyes and remember. It is 1977 and we’re all at the Redwood Empire Ice Area. There is a little disco dancing stage on the side and two disco balls–one above the ice and the over about the little stage. The rink manager just finished playing something from The Little River Band and then the lights go down and the disco balls start turning around. The multi-colored stage lights all over the arena come on and suddenly you hear Donna Summer start singing “I Feel Love”.

Oh yes, those were fun times. I remember the dancing and skating. We even skated to the same music at the Star Skate roller rink and pulled all nighters. I wasn’t much of a roller skater as I preferred to fall on something I could slide on and ice skating was always more graceful than wheels.

I played that song this morning remembering how my friends and I used to play Donna Summer all the time. She was the Diva, and the best one. She was prettier than the others. She was elegant. She had class. She could sing a disco song and carry a tune the others couldn’t hit. I was sad to know that she had passed away this morning. I didn’t even know that she had cancer because she wasn’t an obnoxious blabber mouth trying to get into all the press. Like I said, she had class.

R.I.P Donna Summer. Thanks for making the disco years survivable.

    The world lost a vibrant artist. I was very sad when I heard she lost her loong battle to cancer. I'm sorry I just did my nails and can't type well. What can I say? I always wanted to STYLE like Summer!!
