R.I.P. Loleatta Holloway – The Best Of Them All

by Chris Cox ~ March 22nd, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized.

I am so sad and destroyed about the death of Loleatta Holloway. She was, with out a doubt, the most important voice in my life.

Her voice brought me joy when I was alone, her voice made me want to make dance music, her voice connected me with one of my best friends, and her voice was singing in the delivery room at the moment when my daughter was born. When I met her and told her that story, she cried and gave me one of the greatest hugs ever.

How fitting that “Share My Joy” was the record of hers that I got to work on, because joy was all I felt hearing her amazing voice. I will definitely shed many tears for her tonight, and the only thing that will possibly make it better will be listening to her amazing gift that, thankfully, she shared with the world.
