The family of Donna Summers held a private memorial service today to say their final goodbyes, to the “Queen of Disco”.
Several hundred of the “I Feel Love” hit makers closest friends and family began crowding into a Nashville, Tennessee, church Wednesday afternoon to say goodbye to the “Queen of Disco,” who died of lung cancer last week at aged 63.
Her family chose Nashville, where Donna moved in 1994, because it was a place “close to her heart.” They made arrangements privately but by this afternoon it was revealed that the service was being held at 2 p.m. in the Christ Presbyterian Church there in Nashville. While cameras were banned from inside, television crews set up their cameras outside the church.
Several of her long time collaborators were in attendance including music producer David Foster and Italian record producer Giorgio Moroder, who produced several disco hits with Summer, including “Love to Love You Baby” and “I Feel Love.”
She is survived by her husband Bruce Sudano, three daughters and four grandchildren.
