Loleatta Holloway Dies At Age 64

Disco star Loleatta Hollaway, best known for the 1980 disco song ‘Love Sensation’ and the voice on hits by Blackbox and Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, has died from heart failure at the age of 64.

Loleatta started out singing in her mother’s choir, the Holloway Community Singers, before recording her first single in 1971. At the end of the decade she sang backing vocals on Dan Hartman’s ‘Re-Light My Fire’ who then wrote and produced what became her greatest hit ‘Love Sensation’.

‘Love Sensation’ was reinvented a decade later when Blackbox sampled her vocal on ‘Right On Time’. Loleatta was also the voice of the Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch hit ‘Good Vibrations’ in 1991.

In more recent years Loleatta recorded a cover of Madonna’s ‘Like A Prayer’ for the Madonna tribute album ‘Virgin Voices’. She was also sampled on the Whitey Houston 2009 recording of ‘Million Dollar Bill’.
