She was a powerful singer and a free spirit whom America ought to be prouder of. I saw her once with Starship, and she belted. Great band anyway.

BTW, I have to admit to a guilty pleasure. I'm probably pretty alone here in this: I LOVE We Built this City, and I sing along with it every time it comes up on my Spotify "great rock" playlist. Hoooooooooooop-lahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
