According to Fontella’s family, the singer passed away in a St. Louis hospital from complications she suffered following a heart attack three weeks ago. Bass also had several strokes since 2005.

The R&B star scored a ton of hits over her career — including “You’ll Miss Me (When I’m Gone)” and “Don’t Mess Up a Good Thing” — but none as big as “Rescue Me.

Naturally Moi extends condolences to the Bass family.
