Helen Reddy/Mac Davis RIP

Just read at the CNN website that both singers have passed away.

Didn't know that Mac Davis also wrote In the Ghetto(Elvis Presley hit song).

Although he recorded his own song "I Believe In Music", Helen's recording of it became a hit first.

They both had great careers, and were both a couple of my mom's favorite artists. They were actually also both 78.

Mac Davis and Helen Reddy were frequently on the "Midnight Special" in the '70s (which I think was the best music show of that era because it mandated live performances, so no lip syncing allowed)


Helen Reddy performing "I Am Woman" on the Midnight Special




Mac Davis performing "Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me" on the Midnight Special




They were both great. RIP
