Viola Wills, the singer behind the hits Gonna Get Along Without You Now and Dare To Dream, sadly passed away on May 6 after a battle with cancer.

95.8 Capital FM programme administrator Patrick Neville says, “She had a long association with the UK. Her diva status in the gay community was confirmed many years ago. It’s My Pleasure, credited to My Friend Sam featuring Viola Wills was a major dance hit and still features regularly on compilations here in the UK.”

A memorial service will be held at the Angeles Abbey Memorial Park in LA on May 15.

That's sad.
But at least she is not suffering no more.

Viola was one of the first artists that I played whose tracks went down well with both the straight & gay crowds not to mention the older set.
It's a pity I never got to see her live but I hear she was a performer of the highest calibre.
She will be missed.

RIP Viola.

I never did post a Viola Wills track; so as a tribute here is a jam of hers out of respect.
