Beyonce is just one of the artists that have been inspired by Donna Summer‘s voice and music. Beyonce’s single “Naughty Girl” from debut solo album Dangerously In Love–was a direct sample of “Love To Love You, Baby” by Donna Summer.
Donna Summer died two days ago from lung cancer, and her passing has prompted an emotional response from Beyonce:
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.
