Donna Summer, hailed by many as the “Queen Of Disco,” reportedly passed away today after an apparent battle with cancer. Summer was most known for her catchy, dancing hits and was a 5-time Grammy winner who most will associate her name with her bigger hits “Last Dance” and “Bad Girls.” But I’ll always think of her in reference to the ’80s, the rise of aerobics and women’s fitness because my mom’s workout class played “She Works Hard For The Money” as part of the musical routine.

Update: Take a few minutes to watch Summer’s 2008 interview with ABC’s “Nightline” and hear her reflect on her career, how Janis Joplin, Marvin Gaye and more inspired her music and she also shares the story behind her hit “She Works Hard…”
