Elton John, Kylie Minogue and Ryan Seacrest join celebrities paying tribute to Donna Summer who passed away yesterday at the age of 63.
Elton John was one of the first stars to speak out about his sadness that the queen of disco had died following a long battle with cancer.
"I'm so sad. This woman was the queen of disco and so much more," he told E! News.
"Her records sound as good today as they ever did. She is a great friend to me and to the Elton John AIDS Foundation and I will miss her greatly."
The ‘Rocket Man’ singer also criticised the fact that the ‘Hot Stuff’ star had never been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame despite her impressive talent and career
“That she has never been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a total disgrace, especially when I see the second-rate talent that has been inducted.” He added.
Several stars shared their grief on Twitter with Kylie Minogue calling her "one of my earliest musical inspirations."
“I remember sitting in the front seat of my mom's toyota while she sang Donna Summer's "she works hard for the money" songs were just classic," American Idol host Ryan Seacrest tweeted.
Extra presenter Mario Lopez reminisced about happy times that were touched by her music: "I remember roller skating to this like "Last Dance" "Hot Stuff" & "Bad Girls." Synonymous with the 70's. #QueenOfDisco"
Donna Summer was regarded as one of the most iconic singers of the seventies and ruled the charts with her disco classics.
