Legendary rhythm & blues recording artist and Jackson resident Denise LaSalle has died, according to an e-mail by family spokesman Howard Rambsy.

LaSalle, 78, is known for such R&B hits as “Trapped by a Thing Called Love” and “Now Run and Tell That.” She was inducted into the Rhythm and Blues Music Hall of Fame in 2015 and had recently branched into the gospel genre of music.

She suffered from health issues in recent months that resulted in the amputation of her right leg after she suffered a fall.

She’d planned to open the Denise LaSalle Blues Academy of Performing Arts in Jackson and was still working to achieve that.

Longtime singer Denise LaSalle was the wife of former disc jockey and city councilman and legendary local radio personality James Wolfe.
