Australia’s Folk Music Icon Judith Durham has died at the age of 79.
The Seekers were a huge hit in the 60’s, racking up big hits like “I’ll Never Find Another You,” and “A World of Our Own.” But, “Georgy Girl” was a monster.
The title song to the movie with the same name also became a blockbuster. The organization said in recognition, “Our lives are changed perpetually losing our cherished long-lasting companion and sparkling star.
Her battle was serious and courageous – never griping about her predetermination and completely tolerating its decision. Her sublime melodic heritage Keith, Bruce, and I are so honored to share.”
Judith’s sister, Beverley Sheehan, added, “Judith’s delight forever, her steady good faith, innovativeness and liberality of soul were consistently a motivation to me”.
Judith Durham Cause Of Death
Universal Music Australia announced her death, saying she had a brief stay in a hospital and ultimately died from a chronic lung disease.
Anthony Albanese, the Prime Minister of Australia, referred to Judith as “an irreplaceable asset.”
The Seekers were around amazingly from 1963 – 1968, lining up with The Beatles run.
The gathering sold 50 million records which was an enormous accomplishment.
The gathering got the Australian of the Year grant in ’67. Despite the fact that they separated about a year after the fact, they rejoined every once in a while … as of late as 2014.
