PHOTOS: Fans Remember Donna Summer

Flowers, records and mementos were left on the late singer's Walk of Fame star on Hollywood Boulevard Thursday.

By Thursday afternoon, Donna Summer's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame had amassed a variety of mementos left by fans following the announcement of her death in Florida.

The Hollywood Historic Trust had placed a wreath filled with pink roses, yellow orchids, snapdragons and Queen Anne's lace. Fans had left handwritten messages, candles and a sparkling tiara on the star. (One guy passing by threw his cigarette butt, which landed on the star's name while I was there snapping photos. Oh, Hollywood.)

A couple TV reporters were stationed in front of the star for the early evening broadcasts. News vans were parked close by in a line.

Summer's star is located in front of 7000 Hollywood Boulevard, adjacent to the Roosevelt Hotel.

She was inducted into the Walk of Fame on March 18, 1992, said Ana Martinez, spokeswoman for the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Summer received star No. 1,952 and sang live without musical accompaniment at her dedication ceremony.

Check out the photos in the slideshow for a peek at the scene late Thursday afternoon.

We love you so much Miss Donna Summer! Heaven Knows you were the beat, the pulse, and the thump of our souls with your incredible music. What a talent you were, and very few people know you wrote many of your songs. A disco ball is shining in heaven today. Love you lady!

I so remember her songs: "Love to Love You Baby", "MacArthur Park", "On the Radio", "Dim All the Lights", "Sunset People", "Bad Girls", "Hot Stuff", "Heaven Knows", "She Works Hard for the Money", "I Feel Love", "No More Tears (Enough is Enough), "Last Dance", and "State of Indepence". They lifted my spirits when they were in sore need of being lifted. I can easily imagine her dueting with Whitney Houston in the Otherworld; those ladies must really be rocking that place tonight!
