fontella bass diesFontella Bass, a gospel, blues and soul singer known to most of the music world as a one-hit wonder for “Rescue Me,” died Wednesday of complications from an earlier heart attack at the age of 72. The singer’s name had been omitted as co-writer of the monster hit and she spent years trying to get her royalties but in the process was labeled as a “troublemaker” forcing her career to suffer even further. Her song was been used in TV commercials over the past 20 years which helped her to earn more income on the song. She had been in declining health for the past decade.
