ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A public memorial is set for Friday for singer Fontella Bass. It will be at 7:00 p.m. at the Shalom Church City of Peace in Florissant, Missouri.
The St. Louis native died last week after suffering from a heart attack in early December. Her 1965 hit, “Rescue Me” introduced her R&B and gospel voice to the world. The 72-year-old singer got a spot on the St. Louis Walk of Fame in 2000.
