Fontella Bass, writer and singer of “Rescue Me”, passed away.

You may not know her name, but I guarantee you know at least one of her songs, the 1964 hit “Rescue Me”. Fontella Bass passed away on Wednesday due to complications of a recent heart attack. She was 72 years old.

We’ll miss you Fontella Bass, but we’ll never forget “Rescue Me.”

The New York Times has a nice write-up of her early career.
