It was a sad day in the music industry Thursday as we learned of the passing of Donna Summer at the age of 63.  She had been battling cancer, although she kept those details private.  She had rightfully been called ‘The Queen Of Disco’, but her influence reached across all  genres of music, even into country.

She and husband Bruce Sudano wrote ‘Starting Over Again’, a ballad about divorce that was a #1 hit for Dolly Parton in 1980.  In 1996, Reba recorded the song and it was a top 20 hit for her.

Enjoy the videos of Reba singing the Donna Summer penned hit, and one of Donna's most memorable songs.  RIP to a wonderful woman who will be missed.
