Our take: Singer Donna Summer, who died Thursday at the age of 63, is being remembered by many media outlets for her contributions to disco, but some are also reflecting on her faith. Summer, who was raised on gospel music, became a born-again Christian later in her life. In an appearance on "The 700 Club," Summer explained how she returned to her roots of faith after a period of spiritual darkness and confusion.
Donna Summer, the singer known as the "Queen of Disco," died Thursday after a battle with cancer. She was 63.
Summer won five Grammy awards for her upbeat hits that soared to the top of music charts in the 70s and 80s.
"I opened my mouth and ... this voice just shot out of me. It shocked me and it shocked everybody in the room," Summer said in a 2008 interview.
"And I started crying, and I heard the voice of God say to me, 'You're going to be famous, and this is power and you're never to misuse this power,'" she continued.
