The Bee Gees were an early inspiration for me, Kelly and Michelle. We loved their songwriting and beautiful harmonies. Recording their classic song, “Emotion,” was a special time for Destiny’s Child. Sadly we lost Robin Gibb this week. My heart goes out to his brother Barry and the rest of his family.

Love,

Donna Summer died on Thursday (May 17) at the age of 63 and since the “Disco Queen” passed away, several influential stars have continued to share their sadness over her death. Beyonce is the latest, taking to her newly re-launched website to pen a note to the star.

“Donna Summer made music that moved me both emotionally and physically to get up and dance. You could always hear the deep passion in her voice,” Bey wrote. “She was so much more than the queen of disco she became known for, she was an honest and gifted singer with flawless vocal talent. I’ve always been a huge fan and was honored to sample one of her songs. She touched many generations and will be so sadly missed. My love goes out to her family during this difficult time.”

Love, B

BeyoncĂ©’s sister, Solange Knowles, who is known for her throwback style in music and fashion, shared, “Donna Summer- You have inspired me in so many ways…..”
