Singer Angela Bofill Died at 70 Years Old

The famous RandB star, who is renowned for her powerful voice, is confirmed to have passed away on June 13, leaving a legacy that extends over four decades of musical excellence.

AceShowbiz - R&B singer Angela Bofill, renowned for her powerful voice and hit tracks like "This Time I'll Be Sweeter", "I Try" and "Angel of the Night", has passed away at the age of 70. Bofill's passing was confirmed on June 13, leaving a legacy that extends over four decades of musical excellence.

Angela Bofill's death was announced on her Facebook page on June 14 by her manager and close friend, Rich Engel. The posts clarified that she died at her daughter's home in Vallejo, California. Engel also mentioned that the funeral service would take place at St. Dominick's Church on June 28. "ON BEHALF OF MY DEAR FRIEND ANGIE, I AM SADDENED TO ANNOUNCE HER PASSING ON THE MORNING OF JUNE 13TH," read the first post, adorned with heartfelt condolences from fellow vocalists Melba Moore and Maysa.

Bofill, born in Brooklyn and raised in the Bronx, first captured the public's heart with her debut album "Angie" in 1978. Her talent for reaching both high and low notes and her impeccable pitch earned her a spot among the top R&B and soul artists of the late 20th century. Hits like "Something About You", "I'm On Your Side", "Let Me Be the One" and "I Just Wanna Stop" solidified her status as a musical icon.

Health issues, however, marked Bofill's later years. In 2006, she suffered a stroke that partially paralyzed her left side and again in 2007, resulting in more severe debilitation that affected her ability to sing. Despite these challenges, Bofill maintained an optimistic spirit, even creating "The Angela Bofill Experience", where she would recount her life and career while other artists performed her songs. "But my voice no sing. I rather not sing. Awful. Crack me up! Funny! I laugh about it. But very grateful, still living. Never take things for granted," she told The Denver Post in 2011.
