[ # ] RIP Irene Cara
November 26th, 2022 under Obits

Irene Cara passed away at the age of 63, according to a statement written by her publicist.

Irene Cara started off the 1980s telling us to remember her name, and we did. Even though she retired at an early age, we never forgot her name, her music, or her roles.

Before she had Fame at the age of 20, she spent the ’70s on Broadway, on Electric Company, and in Sparkle, along with so much more. But then came Fame, followed up a few years later with even more of it when she sang the theme song to Flashdance, What a Feeling. And what a feeling she had when she won the Oscar and a Grammy for the emotional rollercoaster of a single.

Those are just two of the many, many, many songs she released throughout her career. Songs that make you want to get up and dance, or they make you want to cry. If you tried to sing along with her, you would have to be prepared to belt out the tune. However, you could never come close to singing as beautifully as she did. Ask Mariah Carey.

To this day, I will never understand why no one asked her and Kenny Loggins to do a duet for a movie in the ’80s because they were the King and Queen of that era and genre.

So today, we say “Long live the Queen” by singing her music and watching her movies. Let her hear our voices as she makes her way up to heaven.

I can never thank her enough for all the amazing music she blessed us with throughout her life that was cut way too short.
