Helen Reddy, the Australian singer – most famous for her song I Am Woman – has died, aged 78.
Reddy was a singer, actress, and activist who held dual Australian and American citizenships.
Born in Melbourne to a show-business family, Reddy began her career as an entertainer at age four, singing on radio and television, and winning a talent contest on the popular music program Bandstand in 1966.
During the 1970s, Reddy enjoyed international success, especially in the U.S. where she scored an astonishing 15 hits in the top 40 of the Billboard 100. Three of these reached number one, including her signature hit I Am Woman.
Only recently, Tilda Cobham-Hervey played Reddy in a biopic currently airing on steam TV.
Reddy is survived by her children, Traci and Jordan, and her sister Toni Lamond.
