Sarah Dash has died.

The co-founding member of iconic R&B girl group Labelle, who is best known for their 1974 hit ‘Lady Marmalade’, has sadly passed away at the age of 76.

Sarah performed right up until her death, having joined her bandmate, Patti LaBelle, on stage on Saturday (18.09.21).

The cause of death is unknown at the time of writing.

In a touching tribute, “heartbroken” Patti, 77, told Billboard: “We were just on stage together on Saturday [Sept. 18] and it was such a powerful and special moment.

“Sarah Dash was an awesomely talented, beautiful, and loving soul who blessed my life and the lives of so many others in more ways than I can say. I could always count on her to have my back.

“That’s who Sarah was … a loyal friend and a voice for those who didn’t have one. She was a true giver, always serving and sharing her talent and time.”

She concluded: “And I pray that her precious memory brings us peace and comfort. Rest in power, my dear sister. I love you always!”

Sarah first founded The Ordettes with Patti, Nona Hendryx, and Sundray Tucker.

The group went through a number of name changes, and in 1971, they started to gain traction under the name Labelle – without Sundray.

However, they went their separate ways five years later, and Sarah pursued a successful solo career.

The star released four solo records between 1978 and 1988.

Labelle reunited in the 90s and went on to have a number one hit with ‘Turn It Out’ in the US dance charts in 1995, with what marked their first new music in almost 20 years.

The group reunited again in 2008 for the album ‘Back to Now.’

Sarah was also known for her work with Keith Richards.

The Rolling Stone recruited Sarah for his solo band the X-pensive Winos’ tour in 1988, and her vocals can be heard across the 77-year-old music legend’s three solo albums.

The late singer also features on the ‘Satisfaction’ hitmakers’ 1989 album ‘Steel Wheels’.

Sarah Dash Biography, Wiki

Sarah Dash was an American singer and actress. She first appeared on the music scene as a member of Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles. Dash was later a member of Labelle and worked as a singer, session musician, and sideman for The Rolling Stones, and Keith Richards.

The seventh of 13 children, Dash was born in Trenton, NJ. Her father was the Church of Christ father of the state of New Jersey and a bishop, while her mother was a nurse.

Although she initially sang gospel music, Dash turned to secular music as a pre-teen, when she formed a vocal duo, the Del Capris, with schoolmate Nona Hendryx. The two women were soon joined by Cindy Birdsong and Patricia “Patti LaBelle” Holte.

Originally named the Blue Bells, the quartet changed their name to Patti LaBelle & the Blue Belles after discovering that the name the Blue Bells was already taken by another group.

Patti LaBelle & the Blue Belles were a success from the onset. Their debut single, “I Sold My Heart to the Junkman,” was a hit, and the group was chosen to open shows during the Rolling Stones’ first American tour. Although many believed that they were in danger of breaking up after Birdsong left to join the Supremes, the three remaining members moved to England for a year and dramatically changed their image and musical approach.

Returning to the United States as LaBelle, the three vocalists began performing in space-age costumes and featuring cutting-edge, sexually-oriented, and politically charged tunes. Dash’s four-and-a-half-octave voice and her pension for silver bras, space-age skirts, and flowing feathers continued to draw attention.

The revised edition of the group even surpassed the success of the original, with the Top Ten single “Lady Marmalade.” Though they separated in the late ’70s to pursue solo careers, the members of LaBelle reunited to record a single, “Turn It Out”, for the Steven Spielberg-produced film To Wong Foo: Thanks For Everything! in 1995. The tune quickly zoomed to the top position on the Billboard dance charts.

In 1961, following the break-up of a rival girl group, Hendryx and Dash joined Holte and Tucker in “The Ordettes”. In 1961, Tucker was replaced by Philadelphia-born Cindy Birdsong and the quartet became The Bluebelles in 1962.

The group changed their name again to Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles after Holte was advised to adopt the stage name of Patti Labelle.

Among the Bluebelles hits including the doo-wop classic, “I Sold My Heart to the Junkman” and doo-wop-Esque R&B ballads “You’ll Never Walk Alone” and “Danny Boy”, the top forty classics, “Down the Aisle”, the soul standard “All or Nothing” and their now-legendary rendition of “Over the Rainbow”, which LaBelle later transformed into a tour-de-force in her 1981 solo cover.
