A statement announcing the superstar’s death was posted to her Instagram account saying, in part, “she enchanted millions of fans around the world and inspired the stars of tomorrow. Today, we say goodbye to a dear friend who leaves us all her greatest work, her music….” An electrifying performer, she captivated audiences with songs like ‘Proud Mary’.
