Dani, a French singer, best known for her work in the 60s and 70s, died on Monday, July 18.

The legendary French singer Dani, full name Daniele Graule , who made a comeback during the early 2000s, died aged 77, as reported by BMF.

The singer had also worked as a model, actress and showgirl, and had just finished touring her last album Horizon Dores, while preparing a brand new album.

According to the singer’s manager, her death was the result of an illness in the Tours region where she was living.

In a statement, her producer said:

“Dani lived through booms and bangs and made us live through them, to meet her was to embark on a crazy race where love was the key word. ”

“Nothing was more important to her than to create, to sing, to be surrounded by those she loved. Her relatives, her friends, the artists who crossed her path, we are all orphans at heart.”

Tributes have since flooded in on Twitter:

“Dani had the elegance of her freedom, or maybe it was the freedom of her elegance.
