well, it's not that young if you consider she's nearly twice as old as Amy Winehouse

Fan or not there's no denying she had one of the absolute greatest voices in pop music ever. She never once had to rely on studio wizardry or autotune for her vocals during the peak of her career. Her singles and videos always showcased her voice before her body and her rendition of The Star Spangled Banner is widely recognized as the definitive version by which all other pop stars are measured against (and fall short).

She might have turned into a crazy crackhead but that just makes her wasted talent that much more disappointing. Here's hoping she's hooked up with better people now.

I hate national anthems.

Anyway I certainly remember her first big one, Saving All My Love For You, but I didn't follow the charts much after that so don't know her other songs well.

I suppose it might be considered more tragic if someone dies of more natural causes like Laura Branigan as maybe there is less warning that it is likely to happen and less that can be done about it sometimes. But it is bad as well when someone throws their life away through drugs, even more so if they have been given opportunities in the past and had support for their music. Commiserations to her family and friends.

i followed her career throughout the 80s - "I Wanna Dance With Somebody", "How Will I Know?", the George Benson cover and of coz, that Dolly Parton cover

i will be listening to her greatest hits compilation soon

Same here. I guess that's what drugs will do to you.

Sad loss though. What a voice.

Personally never cared for her music but she had a great voice and it's tragic her life was cut so short.
