Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Helen Reddy, the Australian-born singer whose 1972 hit song "I Am Woman" became the feminist anthem of the decade and propelled her to international pop-music stardom, died on Tuesday in Los Angeles. She was 78. "I Am Woman" reached No. 1 on the Billboard chart at the end of 1972 (a good six months after it was released -- individual call-in requests helped build radio play) and earned her the Grammy Award for best female pop vocal performance.

There should be more love here for the great Helen Reddy. Her voice was one of a kind. "Candle on the Water" from Pete's Dragon is one of the all-time great Disney songs.
