Betty Davis, the iconic funk singer, and ex-wife of jazz great, Miles Davis, has died at the age of 77.
Davis died early on Wednesday February 9, in her hometown of Homestead, Pennsylvania. No cause of death has been given.
Her passing was confirmed to Rolling Stone by the performer’s close friend Danielle Maggio.
The communications director for Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, Amie Downs, said that Davis died from natural causes.
Davis rose to prominence in the mid-1960s and 1970s with her instantly recognizable raspy voice and cemented herself in funk music history.
She married Miles Davis in 1968 and played a pivotal role in the musician’s creative life, introducing him to the psychedelic rock genre, as well as singer and guitar virtuoso Jimi Hendrix. Davis inspired the sound of Miles’ platinum-selling album “Bitches Brew.”The two divorced just a year later in 1969.
