Rest in Power, Helen Reddy and Mac Davis

Yesterday, we lost two amazing performers. Both Helen Reddy and Mac Davis were 78 years old. Their genres were different, but they were powerful in their own ways. Reddy was best known for her anthemic “I Am Woman,” but she was also an actor (she was in the original “Pete’s Dragon” as well as several other films). Davis was a noted singer-songwriter (“In The Ghetto” and “A Little Less Conversation” were just two of his works).

  1. Helen got a lot of flak for singing what everyone thought was a radical feminist anthem, but she said later that it was never intended as one. My favorite song of hers was “Angie Baby,” and she did a pretty good cover of “Delta Dawn.”

    Mac Davis also wrote “I Believe In Music,” which was a good song, too.
