Music legend  DONNA SUMMER, the Queen of Disco,  has died after a battle with cancer at age 63.

Summer was in Florida at the time of her death.

Donna  was a 5-time Grammy winner who shot to superstardom during the disco boom of the 1970s with such chartbusters as "Last Dance," "Hot Stuff" and "Bad Girls."

Her "Love to Love You Baby" was banned in the UK for racy and suggestive lyrics and Dona's sultry dance moves.

Summer also dominated into the next decade with "She Works Hard for the Money" and "This Time I Know It's for Real."

Working with producer Giorgio Moroder Donna more than defined the music of that era – she OWNED it.

"Early this morning, we lost Donna Summer Sudano, a woman of many gifts, the greatest being her faith," her family told The Hollywood Reporter .

“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."
