Donna Summer: Not the Last Dance
Where is she??? According to TMZ, Donna Summer, the “queen of disco” and a 70′s pop icon, died this morning. I’ve been hunting all day. I can usually pick out celebrities and others who gained the whole world, but, alas, lose their soul. But I’ve looked and looked. There’s been a steady stream of startled souls tumbling through my gates today.
But no Donna.
According to TMZ, Donna Summer, who was 63, was a 5-time Grammy winner who shot to superstardom in the ’70s with iconic hits like “Last Dance,” “Hot Stuff” and “Bad Girls.”
But it seems she was more than that.
Apparently the rumors were true. According to reports, Ms. Summer “fell into severe depression after the 9/11 attacks on the US, Summer recovered with the help of her faith.”
Well, that sounds bad, but usually the faith of celebrities follows them right to my doorstep.
After all, everyone has faith — the question is faith in whom?
Ha ha ha ha ha.
But according to this same report, Ms. Summer said in 2008:
I went to church and light came back into my soul. That heaviness was gone.
I remember that. I didn’t believe it at the time, but sure enough, Ms. Summer became known as a “born again Christian.”
In fact, according to this report, her family said in a statement:
Early this morning we lost Donna Summer Sudano, a woman of many gifts, the greatest being her faith.
Well, I suppose I can stop looking.
Lost a good one.
