The booming voice behind house classic “Everyday” and Chicago-native singer Kim English has died.
According to a post from her label Nervous Records it was confirmed that she had passed. The label reminisces about her singing and songwriting talents. In addition, they discuss her devotion to her religious roots and family. Nervous Records gave fans insight on how she would tackle records.
“When you look at her body of work, and read the song titles, you start to understand that while she knew she was making music for people to dance to, she also made sure she was imparting positive messages and lessons through her music,” Nervous Records wrote.
No details as of yet have been given on how she passed. Nevertheless, it’s a sad sight to see such talent move on. With high-energy anthems, such as “Unspeakable Joy”, and “Treat Me Right”, her impact on the genre won’t be forgotten. “Without question, she had more great work in her, but we will have to be satisfied with the beautiful music she blessed us with……….” wrote Nervous Records.
Fans flocked to social media to give their condolences.
Kim English was incredible. I have been absolutely in awe of her voice since she started to release music in the 90s. It was a dream to be able to work with her in any context one day, and I felt honoured that we made it happen last year. You are irreplaceable. Rest In Peace.
