Sarah Dash, a literal angel, one of the great human beings of all time, has died at age 76.
A gifted vocalist, Sarah was an original member of Labelle with Patti Labelle and Nona Hendryx and always will be known that way. She also had an amazing solo career and sang with Keith Richards on his records as a featured performer.
She was a cutie patootie. She was beloved in ways I cant tell you. She was a radiant person.
Sarah joined Patti on stage at Caesar’s in Atlantic City on Saturday night. She must have been so happy. And then I’m told she died of a heart attack this morning.
Patti Labelle has just written on Facebook: “We were just on-stage together on Saturday and it was such a powerful and special moment! Sarah Dash was an awesomely talented, beautiful, and loving soul who blessed my life and the lives of so many others in more ways than I can say. And I could always count on her to have my back! That’s who Sarah was…a loyal friend and a voice for those who didn’t have one. She was a true giver…always serving, always sharing her talent and her time. I am heart broken, as I know all of her loved ones and fans are. But, I know that Sarah’s spirit and all that she has given to the world live on! And I pray that her precious memory brings us peace and comfort. Rest in power my dear sister. I love you always”
