Reggae songbird Yvonne Sterling has passed in hospital after suffering a stroke.
Sterling, 64, had been undergoing treatment at Kingston Public Hospital (KPH).
Tamara Harrison, Sterling’s niece, confirmed the news shortly after the family was notified.
Harrison told The Gleaner that the family had been hopeful that the songbird would have recovered.
She recently returned to the spotlight after The Gleaner highlighted her plight that she had hit hard times.
A few weeks later, Sterling was singing a whole new tune having relocated and restarted her recording career, after some 30 years.
“Thank You Lord”, recorded with Richie Stephens and Little Lenny for Pot of Gold records, is her latest tune which she recorded and shot a music video for in recent weeks.
She is the singer of the hit ‘If You Love Me’ and 'Oh Jah'.
