The career of Helen Reddy may have spanned nearly 55 years, but there are few who would argue that it is both her anthem “I Am Woman” and role as a feminist by which she will be most remembered — already being proven now that she has, sadly, died at the age of 78.
As her children Jordan Sommers and Traci Donat announced in a statement, “It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Helen Reddy, on the afternoon of September 29, 2020 in Los Angeles. She was a wonderful Mother, Grandmother and a truly formidable woman. Our hearts are broken. But we take comfort in the knowledge that her voice will live on forever.”
She was born Helen Maxine Reddy on October 25, 1941 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, her family well established in show business. Her mother, Stella Campbell, was a singer, actress and dancer, and her father, Maxwell David “Max” Reddy, was a writer, producer and actor.
More to come.
