The Queen of Disco — died yesterday morning after a battle with cancer, which she believed she contracted from breathing in air particles from 9/11.

Summer was in Florida at the time of her death. She was 63 years old.

The singer had been trying to keep the extent of her illness under wraps as  she focused on trying to finish up an album she had been working on.

Summer was a 5-time Grammy winner who shot to superstardom in the ’70s with iconic hits like “Last Dance,” “Hot Stuff” and “Bad Girls.”

Summer married Brooklyn Dreams singer Bruce Sudano back in 1980. They had two daughters together.
