South Africa: Famous singer of South Africa, Deborah Fraser, has died; she was 56. She started her career in 1985 as a backing singer and recorded her album in 2000.
Tributes have flowed in for legendary gospel singer Deborah Fraser, and she passed away on Sunday, May 15, after following a short illness.
In April, the award-winning singer told in her interview that it was difficult for her to walk after a video of her performing in a wheelchair went viral.
The Durban -born singer had sold millions of records during her music career and released more than ten albums before her sudden demise.
Her latest project was a five-track EP titled The Gospel of Deborah Fraser in the last month of 2021.
Last year, in 2021, she was awarded an honorary doctorate by Trinty International Bible University in Ghana.
Fraser died on Sunday afternoon (12:00) “in the presence of her family and friends.”
And her sudden demise was also informed by her family members in a short statement, adding that she passed away shortly after noon.
“As Dr Deborah Fraser’s family, we would like to be given space to process and deal with this very tragic situation. The audience will be further informed of any developments.”
The health of Deborah Fraser was not good since last month. She was sick and hospitalized between February and March.
In the last month, she stated that it all started when I started to vomit uncontrollably and I lost my strength. Since that, I can’t walk.
“Whenever I try to walk, my movement coordination does not support me because I automatically go left when I want to go right.”
