Short Bio

Sara Dash founded an R&B group Labelle-best known for their hit “Lady Marmalade.” Their 1974 pro-sex worker “Lady Marmalade” recorded with Allen Toussaint in New Orleans became their best inspiring multiple cover versions that also hit No. 1 on the charts.

Dash was welcomed into the world on the 18th of August 1945 in Trenton, New Jersey. Dash’s first collaboration was with Nona Hendryx and Patti LaBelle for a doo-wop quartet with Sunday Tucker called the Ordettes.

They rose to star significantly in the ’70s when they re-emerged as the trio Labelle, channeling funk as they eschewed the ’60s girl group aesthetic.

After Labelle broke up in 1976, Dash began a solo career that spanned four albums over the next decade. Afterwards, she became a session singer, recording with the O’Jays, Nile Rodgers, the Marshall Tucker Band, and David Johansen.

 

Tributes

Patti Labelle said to Billboard in a statement, “We were just on stage together on Saturday and it was such a powerful and special moment,” “Sarah Dash was an awesomely talented, beautiful, and loving soul who blessed my life and the lives of so many others in more ways than I can say. I could always count on her to have my back. That’s who Sarah was … a loyal friend and a voice for those who didn’t have one. She was a true giver, always serving and sharing her talent and time. I am heartbroken, as I know all of her loved ones and fans are. But I know that Sarah’s spirit and all that she has given to the world live on. And I pray that her precious memory brings us peace and comfort. Rest in power, my dear sister. I love you always!”
