Helen Reddy Dies at 78

Helen Reddy lost her battle with dementia and died September 29, 2020 in Los Angeles. In the early seventies the Australian dominated the pop chart and won a grammy for her song “I Am Woman”. She had 15 top 40 hits, including 3 number ones and was the top selling female vocalist in 1973 and 1974. The album “I Am Woman” sold 25 million copies in the United States.

A few of her other hits were Angie Baby, Delta Dawn, Leave Me Alone (Ruby Red Dress), You and Me Against the World and I Don’t Know How To Love Him (her cover of the song from Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar).

She was on many variety and talk shows including a recurring co-hosting slot on the Midnight Special. Helen appeared in movies such as Airport (1975) and Pete’s Dragon. On July 23, 1974 she received a star, 1750 Vine Street, on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I bought many of her albums and singles and remember seeing her all the time on TV. I hear her singing (mostly I Am Woman) on Sirius/XM 70’s on 7.
