The singer had recently cancelled a number of performances due to ill health.
She rose to fame in 1975 with the album ‘Inseparable.’
The song ‘This Will Be’ was a big chart hit and led to her being honored with a Grammy for the best female R&B performance, she also picked up another Grammy as best new artist.
A string of hits followed, but in the 1980’s she suffered from drug related issues resulting in hepatitis and an eventual kidney transplant in 2009.
