'Disco Inferno' Singer Jimmy Ellis Dead At 74
Jimmy Ellis, 74, whose vocals can be heard on the popular '70s dance hit "Disco Inferno," died Thursday in South Carolina due to complications from Alzheimer's Disease, the New York Times reported.
Ellis toured with the Philly-based funk band The Trammps until 2010. "Disco Inferno," which was featured on the Grammy-winning Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, was the band's biggest hit.
Ellis is survived by his wife, Beverly, daughter, Erika Stinson, and son James III, as well as three brothers, a sister, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. A memorial service will be held next week in Charlotte, North Carolina.
