Loleatta Holloway has Died


The Godmother of Gay music has passed away.

Loleatta Holloway died yesterday from an illness. She was 64 years old. I LOVE Loleatta! Her voice drove songs to the highest peak for me. I have so many of her songs on my ipod and I live for her voice on a regular basis.

To hear this news hurts, it truly does. But we have her music and that voice. So I wish her peace and share my top Loleatta songs y'all.

Dreaming


Love Sensation


Like a Prayer


We're getting Stronger


Shout it the Top

Love you, Loleatta!!

When one of her songs came on back in the 80's you had better get out of the way or you's be stampeded by queens! R.I.P. my dear Loleatta!
