The global house music community is mourning the death of legendary Chicago house music singer-songwriter Kim English.
The news of her passing was announced on Nervous Records’ Facebook page. English had recorded steadily for the NYC-based label over the years, including club hits such as “Nite Life” and “I Know A Place.”
“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing tonight of Kim English. Kim’s discography includes several songs that are widely recognized as all-time classics in the house music genre. She had a unique ability both through her singing and songwriting talents to inspire people to dance and also celebrate the joys of God and religion. She was a deeply religious and devoted member of the Family Christian Center in Munster, Indiana. While she had many opportunities to travel the globe as a singer, she remained a devoted family member and member of her church, and never allowed herself to be distracted from the path she felt was right for her. More details will be forthcoming tomorrow.”
We’ll have more on this developing story soon.
