Tribute Thursday for Brainstorm & P-Funk singer Belita Woods
Update: We just heard that there will be a tribute to Belita held Thursday night at Bertâ€™s Marketplace, 2727 Russell Street, Detroit; 313-567-2030.
Just over a year ago we wrote about and shared pictures from a benefit for singer Belita Woods in the wake of her massive heart attack. The Detroit singerâ€™s resume goes back to sides with producer Ollie McLaughlin in the â€™60s and the group Brainstorm in the â€™70s and work with P-Funk circle from the â€™90s on.
We recently found out that Woods died on Monday at age 63. This clip of her with George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic from 2004 is a look back at why she created such a fuss. (Thanks to Terry Thunder Hughley via Facebook for turning us on to the clip.)
