DETROIT (AP) – Former Parliament-Funkadelic and Brainstorm singer Belita Woods has died in Detroit. She was 63.

Longtime friend and caregiver Joycelyn Goins says Woods died Monday of heart failure at St. John Hospital & Medical Center.

Woods was lead singer of Brainstorm, whose 1977 album, “Stormin’,” featured the disco hit, “Lovin’ Is Really My Game,” and the R&B hit, “This Must Be Heaven.”

Woods toured with the Parliament-Funkadelic P-Funk All-Stars for two decades, beginning in 1992.

A memorial service will be held for her on Saturday at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit.
