Connie Campbell, former back-up singer for Tarrus Riley is dead.
Connie died on Saturday in Jamaica. She suffered multiple strokes in September 2009, while on tour with the group in the US and was in hospital in a coma ever since.
Dean Fraser, saxophonist of the Black Soil Band says Connie Campbell cannot be replaced.
Connie Campbell was transferred from a hospital in the United States and was subsequently a patient at the Kingston public hospital in Kingston.
The Black Soil Band staged a benefit concert for Connie in 2010, to offset medical bills.
