Not a great start to the 20s with news on social media about the passing of Lorraine Chandler. Lorraine having toured here was very approachable and engaging with her fans. Was for a time a very active member of Soul Source.

R.I.P. Lorraine and thank you for the music.

RIP Lorraine. Such a great artist and revered member of Soul Source. At least she knew how much she was loved in the UK and beyond.

You know she's one of the greats from your immediate reaction to seeing the title of this thread. Sad news indeed.

Your Highness Miss Chandler I bow to your genuine Majesty.

As a late teen the 45 'what can I do' was my first ever 45 I had to 'sought after'.

To hear it all over again just reminds me how good that tune is. Singer, producer...

What can I do when you're gone ? R-I-P

Lorraine, you were a real heroine of the Northern scene. Your records were perfection and you were so easy to talk to.

May God watch over you.
