We're told Summer was in Florida at the time of her death. She was 63 years old.

Sources close to Summer tell us ... the singer was trying to keep the extent of her illness under wraps. We spoke to someone who was with Summer a couple of weeks ago ... who says she didn't seem too bad.

In fact, we're told she was focused on trying to finish up an album she had been working on.

Summer was a 5-time Grammy winner who shot to superstardom in the '70s with iconic hits like "Last Dance," "Hot Stuff" and "Bad Girls."

State Of Independence(1982)

I know everyone associates Donna with Disco -- and so it should be Smile But this is my favorite Donna 'non disco' -- not even dancing -- number. Kinda reggae, swaying. imo.

Donna Summer died of lung cancer not related to smoking

By Michael Martinez, CNN
updated 8:45 PM EDT, Fri May 18, 2012


(CNN) -- Donna Summer died of lung cancer, but the singer wasn't a smoker, and the cancer wasn't related to smoking, her family's representative said Friday.

Summer's family issued the announcement in the wake of how "various reports currently surfacing about the cause of Ms. Summer's death are not accurate," representative Brian Edward said.

"Obviously, numerous factors can be attributed to the cause of cancer in general, but any details regarding the diagnosis and subsequent treatment of Ms. Summer's case remain between her family and team of doctors," Edwards said in a statement.

Five-time Grammy winner Summer, 63, known as the "queen of disco" during the 1970s, died Thursday at age 63.

Much like the expressive era that her music defined, Summer danced her way through the 1970s with extraordinary success, posting successive hits that electrified dance floors and prompted her coronation as America's disco queen.

But her own life was marked by the highs and lows of the ballads that she energetically sang, and even at the height of her popularity, she once took steps toward suicide -- only to be stopped by the interruption of hotel maids.

She overcame the negative dimensions of relentless public attention, and her legacy as a genre-leading vocalist endures decades later among music enthusiasts, even resulting in an appearance a few years ago on "American Idol."

Summer died surrounded by her family in Florida.

I read where Donna Summer thought she had cancer from inhaling the toxic dust from the world trade center. Over the years she had gotten even more paranoid. At the time of the bombings she lived close to the trade center. Now you hear that she didn't die from smoking it makes you wonder.

Here is the link from TMZ.
