RIP - Loleatta Holloway

Very sad to hear of the passing of a true soul legend and disco diva.

Best known for her work with Dan Hartman most notably on the original Relight My Fire and Love Sensation (known to millions as the basis of Black Box's 1989 megahit Ride On Time) and on Salsoul records with the Salsoul Orchestra (in particular Runaway which was famously covered by MAW's Nuyorican Soul project in 1996), Loleatta Holloway was one of disco's most distinctive vocalists and one of its most sampled artists throughout the past two decades.
