Donna Summer

Music City Memorial

Donna Summer
's family has scheduled a memorial for the Disco Queen -- and TMZ has learned, it will take place next Wednesday in Nashville.

It is not a public memorial. The memorial will only be attended by close friends and family.

Donna and her family moved to Nashville in 1994 -- and sources tell TMZ, Donna's family chose the city specifically because it was her home and was always extremely close to her heart. Nashville's also a cultural epicenter in the music world, so it just makes sense.

TMZ broke the story ... Donna passed away today in Florida due to complications from lung cancer.

She was 63.

Dear TMZ,

I just watched your TV show and was completely appalled at the bit you ran about Donna Summer!

"I feel love...and stiff"

"Buried in MaCarthur Park"

"Love to love you, St Peter"

"Cold Stuff"

"Heaven knows...Me"

"Last Dance...And this time I know it's for real"
(See what we did there?)

What the f*ck is wrong with you people, how disrespectful can you be?

I truly hope that there is a backlash from your sponsors and the Hollywood elite that you so desperately need to earn a paycheck!

Sorry but I never forgave her for stabbing gays in the back. Also, she never asked for forgiveness so there you go. Now she knows there's no Heaven and the jokes on her. Too bad she she chose a zombie savior over the fans that actually put food her table. She could have been bigger than Madonna.
