Fontella Bass Passes Away

Fontella Bass sadly passed away on Wednesday due to complications brought on from a heart attack she suffered three weeks ago.

The 72-year-old, who is perhaps best known for her co-written hit "Rescue Me", is survived by four children. Her daughter, Neuka Mitchell, said of her outgoing mother, "She had a very big personality. Any room she entered, she just lit the room up, whether she was on stage or just going out to eat."

Rest in Peace, Fontella Bass.
