Musical Legends Mac Davis, Helen Reddy Both Dead at 78

Singer-songwriters Morris “Mac” Davis and Helen Reddy died Tuesday. They were both 78 years old and died surrounded by their families.

“Sad news,” said nationally syndicated radio show host Delilah in a Facebook post. “They were both such talented, influential people.”

Delilah’s followers shared memories on her post.

“Loved their music! Their songs were a big part of my life.”

“Two of my favorites from the ’70s. Their wonderful music lives on … RIP Helen Reddy and Mac Davis, thanks for your great songs!”

“I attended a concert in the ’70s where they both performed as co-headliners. The irony of these sad losses is not lost.”

Reddy’s children, Traci Donat and Jordan Sommers, confirmed the news of her death yesterday in a statement posted to Facebook: “She was a wonderful Mother, Grandmother and a truly formidable woman,” said the message. “Our hearts are broken. But we take comfort in the knowledge that her voice will live on forever.”

Best known for her hit, “I Am Woman,” the Australia-born singer had multiple others, including “Delta Dawn,” “Angie Baby” and “You and Me Against the World” as well as her cover of “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” from the rock musical Jesus Christ Superstar, credited with making her famous, according to Fox News.
