American singer Donna Summer
has died of cancer at the age of 63. She is best known to Pokémon fans for singing the song The Power of One
which was used in the English dub movie Pokémon: The Movie 2000
. Earlier this campaign year, Republican nomination candidate Herman Cain quoted lyrics from the song which garnered widespread attention as he initially misquoted where he got the lines from.
"Early this morning, we lost Donna Summer Sudano, a woman of many gifts, the greatest being her faith," the singer's family said in a statement issued Thursday, May 17th, 2012.
"While we grieve her passing, we are at peace celebrating her extraordinary life and her continued legacy. Words truly can't express how much we appreciate your prayers and love for our family at this sensitive time."
