    1950s R&B Star Ruth Brown Dies at Age 78

    1950s R&B Star Ruth Brown Dies at Age 78

    Singer Ruth Brown, whose recordings of "Teardrops in My Eyes," "5-10-15 Hours" and "(Mama) He Treats Your Daughter Mean" shot her to rhythm-and-blues stardom in the 1950s, has died. She was 78.

    Brown, who later in life won a Grammy and a Tony, died Friday of complications from a stroke and heart attack at a Las Vegas-area hospital, said Lindajo Loftus, a publicist for the Rhythm & Blues Foundation, which Brown helped establish.

    Sad news.
    She was one of a kind. But we can be assured, she's in R&B Heaven now.
