Tributes are flowing for Irene Cara after the Fame and Flashdance singer passed away in her Florida home aged 63.
Fame and Flashdance singer Irene Cara has died aged 63.
The 80s star sang and co-wrote the iconic theme tune to Flashdance – What A Feeling – and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
She also played the role of Coco Hernandez in the 1980 blockbuster Fame.
Cara’s publicist Judith Moose said the singer had died at her home in Miami, Florida and a memorial will be planned for fans.
Judith described her as a “beautifully gifted soul”.
This is the absolute worst part of being a publicist. I can't believe I've had to write this, let alone release the news. Please share your thoughts and memories of Irene. I'll be reading each and every one of them and know she'll be smiling from Heaven. She adored her fans. - JM pic.twitter.com/TsC5BwZ3fh
