Soul star Fontella Bass dies at 72

Fontella Bass, the US soul singer who hit the top of the RnB charts with Rescue Me in 1965, has died.

The singer's daughter, Neuka Mitchell, said the music star died at a St Louis hospice last night of complications from a heart attack suffered three weeks ago. She was 72. Bass had also suffered several strokes since 2005.

She was born into a family with deep musical roots. Her mother was gospel singer Martha Bass, one of the Clara Ward Singers. Her younger brother, David Peaston, had a string of RnB hits in the 1980s and 1990s. He died in February, aged 54.

Her surviving family includes four children. Her husband, jazz trumpeter Lester Bowie, died in 1999.
