    Donna Summer, whose disco anthems included "Last Dance", "Love to Love You Baby", "Bad Girls" and "I Feel Love", has died at the age of 63.

    Her family released a statement saying Summer died on Thursday morning and that they "are at peace celebrating her extraordinary life and her continued legacy".

    Musician Elton John said the five time Grammy award winner who died of cancer, was more than a "Queen of Disco" and that "her records sound as good today as they ever did".
