Disco Inferno singer Ellis mourned

James T Ellis, who belted out the refrain Burn, baby burn! in a 1970s-era disco hit that is still replayed in modern sports arenas, has died. He was 74.

David Turner of Bass-Cauthen Funeral Home in Rock Hill, South Carolina, said the frontman for The Trammps died at a nursing home in the city.

A cause of death was not immediately known.

The Trammps released Disco Inferno - the song with the popular refrain - in 1976.

The song was featured in the movie Saturday Night Fever, its soundtrack winning the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1978. Disco Inferno soared up to number 11 on Billboard's Hot 100 on May 27, 1978.

Mr Turner said a memorial service will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina.
