Yes, really sad news to hear. Even Pres. Obama of all people commented on the legend's passing:

"Her voice was unforgettable, and the music industry has lost a legend far too soon. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Donna's family and her dedicated fans," the president said in a written statement.
