Beyonce, Chaka Khan, Nicki Minaj And Other Celebs React To Donna Summer's DEATH

Music legend Donna Summer didn't just inspire a generation of music fan, she also touched the lives of a number of celebrities. Find out what people like Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Chaka Khan and Aretha Franklin said inside about her passing....

 

In addition to those who already knew and loved the queen of disco, a new generation of music lovers were introduced to disco queen Donna Summer through Beyonce's sample of "Love To Love You Baby" on Bey's "Naughty Girl" track off her Dangerously In Love debut solo album.  Now, Mrs. Carter is joining a long list of celebs paying homage to the diva and her musical legacy.  See what other celebs are saying below:

DONNA SUMMER MADE MUSIC THAT MOVED ME BOTH EMOTIONALLY AND PHYSICALLY TO GET UP AND DANCE. YOU COULD ALWAYS HEAR THE DEEP PASSION IN HER VOICE. SHE WAS SO MUCH MORE THAN THE QUEEN OF DISCO SHE BECAME KNOWN FOR, SHE WAS AN HONEST AND GIFTED SINGER WITH FLAWLESS VOCAL TALENT. I'VE ALWAYS BEEN A HUGE FAN AND WAS HONORED TO SAMPLE ONE OF HER SONGS. SHE TOUCHED MANY GENERATIONS AND WILL BE SO SADLY MISSED.

MY LOVE GOES OUT TO HER FAMILY DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME.

LOVE,
B

-Beyonce

Aretha Franklin:

So shocking to hear about the passing of Donna Summer. In the 70s, she reigned over the disco era and kept the disco jumping. Who will forget “Last Dance.” A fine performer and a very nice person. She was a delight to the industry. She and Giorgio Moroder made sales and musical history in the 70s.


Chaka Khan:

I will miss her very much. My love goes out to her family. I’m here for them. Donna and I had a friendship for over 30 years. She is one of the few black women I could speak German with and she is one of the few friends I had in this business.

Barbra Streisand:

"I was shocked to hear about Donna. She was so vital the last time I saw her a few months ago. I loved doing the duet with her. She had an amazing voice and was so talented... It's so sad."

Quincy Jones:

"Rest in Peace dear Donna Summer. Your voice was the heartbeat and soundtrack of a decade."

Ellen DeGeneres:

"I’m so sad about the news that Donna Summer died this morning. I was a big fan. I even used one of her songs in my show that airs today."

Keri Hilson:

"I may be an 80's baby, but I loved the disco era. Donna Summer & Diana Ross were the inspiration for my 70's scene in Pretty Girl Rock vid!"

Niecy Nash:

"Whitney. Tina Marie. Vesta. Now Donna Summer. The choir in heaven has a new member. They will be singing up a beautiful storm"

Timbaland:

"This cant be true. I cant believe this RIP Donna Summer. At a loss for words"

The Summers Family:

"Words truly can't express how much we appreciate your prayers and love for our family at this sensitive time."

Janet Jackson:

We will miss Donna Summer! She changed the world of music with her beautiful voice and incredible talent."

Liza Minnelli:

"When you lose a friend you feel like they are gone forever.that is not true with my dear friend Donna. She was a queen, THE Queen of Disco, and we will be dancing to her music forever."

Nicki Minaj

"Wow, another legend gone. Rest in peace to the beautiful disco queen Donna Summer."

R.I.P. Mrs. Summer.

Donna was the consumate

Donna was the consumate artist. Her voice was full and vibrant with such depth and emotion. Plus, she was so good she only needed to take one or two take in the recording studio. I loved her dearly. I paid tribute in song in 2012 with the release fo my single "Riding Home From Baltimore". It got a great makeover form the award winning KLUBJUMPERS. My heart and soul go out to Donna's huband and family and to her world of fans (including me). Donna took a piece of my heart with her....I will lover her always.

Natasha you really need to monitor and moderate your site, because this thread thread here is ridiculous, we're supposed to be paying homage to a memory instead it's turned into another hate on Beyonce, dating and possible virus if you (are stupid enough) to click on any of the links that have nothing to do with the subject of the thread free for all...incredible how heartless people can be...

There is a differ in being

There is a differ in being admired and inspired than being praised and worshiped... The diggs come from her insecure Stan's when one doesn't come too agree!! We become black, broke, ugly, jealous... Well thats untrue as well as pathetic...Yes the black people who her now Beehives continue to discredit and why!!...All bcuz of a prentious drive to sell crossover records.. Btw arent that Classic!!! Bey got to b real to her art beyond the stage which is living life for her and not fans and being in dam camera!!!! Most just don't care for the obviuosly Fake persona But they know and respect her potential!!!

So what if someone chose to

So what if someone chose to praise and worship Beyonce? It might not be the right thing to do, but it is rude to go out of your way and tell them what they can and cannot do. I never see Beyonce stans telling anyone not to praise who ever they look up, but yet some people have a problem when they do. Its like they really have a problem with the fact that people like Beyonce. And this comments including mine are very disrespectful to the memory of Donna Summers. RIP Donna Summers Beyonce fans doing more than any other fanbase

Why does it irritate you so much to see beyonce have admirers? You think Beyonce is forced. I'm not going to attack you for that but you should respect the fact that people love Beyonce. Dont let it get to you, hon.
