The music industry lost a powerful voice today. The “Queen of Disco,” Donna Summer, passed away this morning in Florida after a long battle with cancer. The five-time Grammy winner was known for her disco anthems “Last Dance,” “Hot Stuff,” “I Feel Love” and “Love to Love You Baby.” The stars took to Twitter to mourn the legendary artist’s death, including “Avengers” star Clark Gregg.
I feel like I lost my virginty just by listening to “Love to Love You Baby” #RIPDonnaSummers

With lyrics reading, “When you’re laying so close to me/There’s no place I’d rather you be than with me/I love to love you, baby/Do it to me again and again,” we can understand why Gregg feels that way. With a soulful voice Summer crooned the lyrics among whispers and moans in the background to create a song that has the power to make any man blush.
Of course, Gregg wasn’t the only one to honor the late singer with a tweet. Countless celebrities took to Twitter to remember the actress including Ryan Seacrest, Adam Lambert and Rihanna. “In Living Color” actor Tommy Davidson sent MTV News a statement about the singer’s death.
“Donna Summer used disco to bring the most unlikely people together—blacks, whites & everyone in between,” he said. “Donna was a role model, the consummate professional. Her guidance and inspiration will forever help me reach new heights as a performer. I cherish the days I toured with her. Love to love you, baby.”
