Queer Music News: George Michael video; disco/soul legend Loleatta Holloway has died

Posted on 22 Mar 2011 at 9:04am

I posted a few days ago that George Michael was releasing his newest single, a cover of New Order’s “True Faith.” Soon after, this video has been making the rounds. Michael looks pretty good after his stint in jail.

Disco fans are discovering that the powerful voice of Loleatta Holloway is now a silent one. The singer died late Monday. It’s been reported that Holloway slipped into a coma and died from heart failure, but I’ve yet to find where that has been confirmed.

The singer famous for disco and soul classics like “Love Sensation,” “Hit and Run” and “Dreaming,” had sort of a resurgence in the ’90s with her sample tracks on Black Box’s “Ride on Time” and her vocal work for Marky Mark’s “Good Vibrations.” She was initially uncredited for the Black Box song but sued the band and settled out of court.
