The legendary singer Roberta Flack has been identified as having Lou Gehrig's disease, often known as ALS.
The 85-year-old singer's sickness has rendered her unable to sing and is limiting her capacity to communicate.
“It will take a lot more than ALS to silence this icon", according to Suzanne Koga, her manager, who spoke to AP News. " But it will take more than ALS to silence this icon, Koga continued.
The amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) diagnosis was made just before the Roberta documentary's Thursday at DOCNYC debut.
Killing Me Softly With His Song and The First Time I Saw Your Face are two songs by Flack that are well-known.
She is a pianist and vocalist who has won a Grammy award, and she says she "plans to be engaged in her musical and artistic endeavours" through her name-brand foundation and other activities.
