Melanie's career began at Woodstock and she died at 76.

CelebrityMelanie's career began at Woodstock and she died at 76.

The singer, who went by the mononym Melanie, died at the age of 76. Her children shared the news in a post on her official Facebook page. "This is the hardest post for us to write, and there are so many things we want to say first, and there's no easy way except to say it," the statement begins. She was one of the most talented, strong and passionate women of the era and every word she wrote, every note she sang reflected that. Our world is dimmer, the colors of a dreary, rainy Tennessee pale with her absence, but we know that she is still here, smiling down on all of us, from the stars. All of you who want to come and celebrate her will be able to do so. The post says that the details will be announced as soon as possible. She and Lee Holdridge won the outstanding achievement in music and lyrics award at the 1989Emmys for their work on the "Beauty and the Beast" theme song. The cast featured Ron Perlman, Roy Dotrice, Jay Acovone, Linda Hamilton, and Renn Woods. "Lay Down (Candles in the Rain)" is one of Melanie's Hot 100 chart-topper. Melanie is the first American woman to open a mainstream record label. After performing at Woodstock, Melanie walked off a celebrity. She didn't have a band, she didn't have a manager, and she didn't have a producer. Melanie's first single, "Beautiful People," was generating some buzz. Chris Jordan is a reporter for the Asbury Park Press.
