    I saw this on Gawker earlier and played Relight My Fire on YouTube (her contributions begin around 6:30 if you can't abide Disco). Unaccountably, I have been a teary mess ever since. Seriously: I've totally lost it.

    I remember seeing her live at a local gay bar in Boston called Chaps. Brings me back. Good times.

    I'm listening to some of her acapellas right now, thinking about all of the other tracks and songs I own that have sampled her voice over the last few decades. We can hear a lot of big room divas bring the house down with a strong vocal, but when Loleatta's voice came on everyone knew it was her. It's a combination of raw talent, emotion and energy that I don't think anyone could ever get close to mimicking.

    I can remember the fuss that was kicked up over Blackbox well.

    Still, tis a shame to loose such talent as this.

    Just posted a video (slideshow) on YouTube in memory of Ms. Loleatta Holloway. It's to her song "Love Sensation. You know the one "Marky Mark" sampled for his one-hit record! This version was remixed by Freemasons and the slideshow contains some hot semi-naked guys.

    Enjoy!
