The singer passed away last Thursday in Florida after losing a secret battle with lung cancer
(WENN) - Donna Summer's classic disco anthem "I Feel Love" is to be honored with an induction into America's National Recording Registry just days after her death.
The singer passed away last Thursday in Florida after losing a secret battle with lung cancer.
The tragedy stunned the music world and led to tributes from an array of stars - and now Summer's legacy will be recognised by officials at the Library of Congress.
On Wednesday, the latest round of audios to be added to the National Recording Registry as a mark of their cultural significance will be announced, and Summer's signature song is on the list.
Also set to be inducted are Prince's "Purple Rain," Dolly Parton track "Coat of Many Colors," and the Grateful Dead's infamous 1977 concert at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.
Other recordings on the list include Leonard Bernstein's conducting debut with the New York Philharmonic, Sugarhill Gang's seminal hip-hop track "Rapper's Delight," and a 1930s interview with former American slaves.
