    Soul singer Fontella Bass, best known for her 1965 hit “Rescue Me,” has died. She was 72.

    According to the Uptown Magazine, the St. Louis-born songstress passed away on December 26th due to complications from a heart attack she suffered three weeks ago. Her daughter, Neuka Mitchell, says Bass had also suffered a series of strokes over the past seven years.

    “She was an outgoing person,” Mitchell added. “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.”
