The entertainment fraternity is mourning the death of singer/dancer Rovleta Fraser Campbell.
The 48-year-old artiste passed away last Thursday at Mandeville Hospital in Manchester. According to her husband Robert Campbell, Rovleta had been ailing for some time.
"She had been suffering and ailing for a while due to abnormalities with her breast. An autopsy will be done to determine the exact cause of her death," he said.
He remembered his wife as generous and caring.
"She was a very genuine and compassionate person. She was also very genuine, loving and honest. She loved performing and she loved music," said Campbell, who first met Rovleta while she was a student at Holy Childhood High School.
"I knew her from when she was a little girl in first form. From then she had a very clear career task in mind, that she wanted to sing and dance. She had also won a teen talent competition and she was a part of the Little People and Teen Players group and later on she was a member of ASHE."
Rovleta was also a supporting vocalist for Grammy winner Damian "Jr Gong" Marley. She appeared on the track Hey Girl with Stephen Marley, which was featured on Damian's Grammy-winning album Welcome to Jamrock.
She also worked with American rhythm and blues singer Teena Marie, appearing on her final studio album, 2009's Congo Square. Rovleta did guest vocals on the track Rovleta's Jass.
Corporate executive Patria Kaye Charles remembered her in a Facebook post.
"Rov's voice was butter. I knew she had talent, but when every night after singing a Whitney [Houston] she got a standing ovation from the entire theatre, you had to respect her pipes. Quiet confidence, I'd always love watching her during a Gong set. She was a show all onto herself, and she never missed a note. You were seen and heard, beautiful Rovleta Fraser Campbell. Thank you for gracing the stage," the post read.
Rovleta Fraser Campbell was employed by the Tourism Product Development Company (TPDCo). She voiced commercials for telecommunications companies as well as consumer brands.
