I know there are a few posts in the Weatherall thread but I think this deserves a thread of its own. Such a powerful voice, her contributions to Screamadelica help make it the album that it is. 53 is no age. Awful news.
A statement from her family
Very sad, just saw her singing with ACR last year
Raised an incredible amount of money in less than 12 hours, which is lovely to see.
