sorry to hear this. When she made it big, she bought a house down the street from one of my high school friends folks' place in the suburbs for her folks. Seemed like a decent person. My music theory class my freshman or sophomore year used the intro to "Hot Stuff" as an example of a song written in a minor chords.
She also took some heat for her religion, too. She was brought up in a conservative church, and I dimly remember a controversy with some gay groups that turned against her because of something coming out about that. Maybe it was a statement of hers about her faith or something from a family member. It kind of took her aback because she was personally tolerant and aware how big the gay community was in the early disco fan base. I forget the details, but maybe someone else remembers.
