Australian singer, actor and activist Helen Reddy has died in Los Angeles.
The music legend - known for her feminist anthem I Am Woman - was 78.
The singer's life was recently turned into a movie of the same name.
In a statement issued on Reddy's official fan Facebook page, her children Traci Donat and Jordan Sommers wrote: "It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Helen Reddy, on the afternoon of September 29th 2020 in Los Angeles."
"She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and a truly formidable woman. Our hearts are broken. But we take comfort in the knowledge that her voice will live on forever."
But her song I Am Woman went to No. 1 in 1972 and launched her global stardom and she followed it up with a string of hits, such as Delta Dawn, Angie Baby and Ain't No Way to Treat a Lady.
She hosted her own TV variety show The Helen Reddy Show and starred in Hollywood films.
Reddy was the world's top-selling female vocalist in 1973 and 1974.
Her career tapered in the 1980s before she officially retired 2002.
She was diagnosed with dementia in 2015 and had been living at a nursing home for retired Hollywood stars in Los Angeles.
