Music fans across the globe–not to mention the entire Soul Train family–were heartbroken to learn that the “Godfather of Go-Go” Chuck Brown passed away yesterday, Weds., May 16, 2012. Just minutes ago we received word that disco queen and vocalist extraordinaire Donna Summer died today, Thursday, May 17, 2012.
In just a few short months, 2012 has taken from us some of the most influential figures in music and popular culture. Once again, all of us at SoulTrain.com mourn the loss of these two legendary artists as we celebrate their life’s work and legacy.
Our prayers and thoughts are with the families, friends, loved ones, and fans of Chuck Brown and Donna Summer.
