Claudia Fontaine

On Tuesday, singer Claudia Fontaine sadly died, aged 57. Hailing from London, she began her career at an early age working with various reggae artists, before her solo career took off. She sung with many artists including The Jam, Elvis Costello, Dusty Springfield, Annie Lennox, and Pink Floyd.

For the Floyd, she performing backing vocals on the 1994 tour of The Division Bell, her wonderful singing captured on the PULSE releases, and can also be seen on the David Gilmour In Concert DVD, representing her contribution to his Meltdown concerts in 2001 and 2002. The picture to the right is from the 1994 tour programme, showing her in action.

Her vocal performances won much praise, but more than that, she was also much-loved by the artists she worked with - as noted by Pink Floyd on their Facebook page, adding that she will always be in their memories.

Our condolences to her family and friends.
