Laura Branigan, a Grammy-nominated pop singer, died on Aug. 26 of a brain aneurysm. She was 47.
The New York native attended the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Manhattan, then spent the mid-1970s touring Europe as a backing singer for Leonard Cohen. In 1979, she signed a record deal with Atlantic Records and launched her career as a solo artist.
Branigan’s self-titled debut album sped up the charts in 1982 with the release of the song “Gloria.” Her powerful, five-octave voice propelled the platinum hit to #2 on the Billboard pop chart, where it remained for 22 weeks. “Gloria” also earned Branigan her first Grammy nomination for best pop vocal performance from a female artist.
Over the next two decades, Branigan released three Top 20 singles, recorded eight albums and earned three more Grammy nominations. She put her performing career on hold, however, to care for her husband Lawrence Kruteck after he was diagnosed with colon cancer. He died in 1996.
Branigan returned to the stage in 2002 to star as Janis Joplin in the off-Broadway rock musical “Love, Janis.” Outside of music, she enjoyed working out, playing tennis, swimming and cooking with friends. At the time of her death, Branigan was working on material for a new album.
Watch Branigan on the VH-1 show “Where Are They Now: Musicians”

One of my favs. I will miss her voice. Thank you Laura for those wonderful songs….Angels Calling…luv XXXX
You will truly be missed, God Bless and keep you safe. Your songs are wonderful. Cindy
Your voice seems to linger on…
Gloria, you’re always on the run now
Running after somebody, you gotta get him somehow
I think you’ve got to slow down before you start to blow it
I think you’re headed for a breakdown, so be careful not to show it
You will never be forgotten!
Your passing came as a shock. I was devistated to learn this yesterday morning driving to work. You had so much more to give, so full of talent & will now never get the opprtunity to see you in concert.
You were only on this earth for a short time however you will forever be remembered for your hits, talent, kindness & in my eyes extreemely good looking.
May your soul now rest in peace.
My heart goes out to your family & friends.
Laura was absolutely gorgeous
in spirit, voice and persona.
And soooo easy on the eyes!

I was shocked and saddened to learn about Laura’s untimely demise! I remember the euphoria when I attended my first pop concert during Laura’s tour here in the Philippines! She was truly talented and beautiful! You will forver live through “GLORIA” and “Spanish Eddie”. A piece of my heart is missing.
May her soul rest in God’s bosom!
I was also shocked when I heard the news of Laura Branigans passing. Everytime I heard “Gloria” or “Solitaire”, it made me think back to how great the 80’s were and how fortunate we were to have Laura share a part of her life with the many fans that she had even after the 80’s had passed. I cannot begin to put into words how much she will be missed but she will never be forgotten. My deepest sympathies go out to the family members. Rest in peace Laura. We love you.
One of the greatest
laura i will always remember who you are. the singer who can sing and a beatuiful woman you were as well. i will never forget you.
fan depuis le d
My sincere sympathy to the family of Laura Branigan, she was one of my favorite singer and I
will always remember her when I hear Solitare and the Power of Love.
Rest in peace Laura, God’s garden was missing an angel and he choose you.
MY SYMPATHY TO ALL THE BRANIGAN FAMILY—ESPECIALLY HER MOM, KATHY. I HAVE JUST SUCH WONDERFUL MEMORIES OF LAURA SINGING AT ONE OF THE WALTER KARL PARTIES. MY LOVE TO ALL, PEGGY MITCHELL
I’ve been a fan since the beginning…as an adolescent in the 80’s. I was lucky enough to have seen her perform live numerous times and to even have her put on the bandanna that I threw onstage at the Great Adventure show in 1984. Hers was the music that I went to when I wanted comfort…when I wanted happiness…and at times…when I wanted a good cry. I’m devastated at the loss of what all her music meant to me. It will now represent something very different. Now at peace and with her beloved, mere mortals will miss what the angels now possess. God bless. How can YOU help US….to say goodbye?…Although painful at the moment to hear, your music will stay on earth with us. May God help to comfort those she left behind until the day they are joined once again. I love you…Eddie Emanuel
even though i’ve grown older the one thing i have not out grown was the music or laura. recently she came to vegas to preform at the time i was not able to make it,but hoped if she came back again i would go no matter what. now i wished i could of seen her one more time. she was one of my favorites. i will truly miss her voice. good bye laura, the mighty king of kings take care of you in heaven.
A beautiful voice. I will always remember her hits GLORIA and Self Control, not to mentioned all her great songs. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family at this time. REST IN PEACE Laura.
Laura, God bless you in your long way.
Every body will surprise your sweet voice and your pretty eyes. Good-bye angel!
I loved the song “Gloria,” and I played it many a time during my teenage years. I will miss Laura Branigan and her talents!
Laura will be missed by millions of people.
Her beautiful voice and songs helped many people, as myself, survive tough times.
Heaven has truly gained and angelic soul and voice.
I was shocked and saddened this morning when I heard that Laura Branigan had passed away. I hadn’t been listening to the news that past few days so I had no clue. I still feel a bit of disbelief that she has died.
I remember her music fondly! The year “Gloria” was a hit on the radio was a great time for me and throughout the rest of the 80s and 90s I would rely on her music for getting into a good mood or just letting out my emotions.
I loved all her albums, but I always thought TOUCH, LAURA BRANIGAN and OVER MY HEART were examples of her best work. (Though I played the album HOLD ME so much it broke and I never was able to find another copy.)Some of her songs were pure tear-jerkers and some could make you feel buoyant and sing-along happy!
She will be greatly missed by her fans for her singing and being a classy lady!
We will miss you deeply, but you never let us, you will be with us forever….. on your music, I will remember those beautiful eyes as long as I live.
Branigan’s you have a new angel with you, my best regards and love.
Laura wherever you are we love and admire you, thanks for that great music. Rest in peace…..
“GLORIA” was my song in highschool…to this day anytime it is being played on the radio, my phone rings or someone will call me and say I thought of you today, they were playing “Gloria”. Well thank you Laura for my song and for all your music through the years. How am I supposed to Live without you has true meaning…it helped me get through the loss of my grandfather and now it will help me with loosing you. I met you several times in Boston – from the Chateau De Ville in Framingham, to the SOuth Shore Music Circus to the Taste of Boston on the Common. I even brought my daughter and she feel in love with “Gloria” too. Thank you…I will miss you very much but keep close to my heart your pictures and autographs. May God Bless you and watch over your family and friend and fans.
Truly ashame to lose someone like Laura who had so much talent and a big heart – at such a young age. You will be missed and always remembered.
I just found out the horrible news 2 hours ago and i just cant believe it! I dont know how i missed it in the last few days. I feel such shock and sadness. My heart is broken. I will miss you always laura! gina
YOUR SONGS INSPIRED ME TO AT ONE TIME TO SING MY HEART OUT AS WELL….UNTIL THIS DAY I HAVE YOUR CD IN MY CAR AND LISTEN TO IT… YOU WILL BE FOREVER MISSED..AND FOREVER IN OUR PRAYERS
I REMEMBER LISTENING TO GLORIA WHEN I WAS FOUR YEARS OLD. LAURA WAS VERY TALENTED AND GIFTED. SHE WILL BE GREATLY MISSED GOD BLESS HER AND HER FAMILY
Not only was ‘Gloria’ a favorite of mine as a
kid but “Self Control” is one of my all time
favorite 80’s tunes (it still gives me goosebumps).I’ve lost a family member to cancer and I send my sympathies to Laura Branigan and
her husband’s family-Branigan’s passing is truely a great diservice to the world of music
and she had a spectacular voice.She and the voice
will be missed in my corner for sure.All the best!
As a child I have lots of beautiful memories with her song Self Control.
I WAS SO SADDENED TO HEAR ABOUT THE PASSING OF LAURA BRANIGAN SHE WAS A GREAT SINGER AND A GREAT LADY I WILL DEEPLY MISS HER SO MUCH AND MY HEARTFELT CONDOLENCES, THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS. LAURA MAY GOD BLESS YOU WILL BE SORELY MISSED.
My dear Laura, you will be in my heart. i miss you so much. I miss your eyes, your face, your smile. But your songs stay in the world.Forever.
How am i supposed to live without you…..
A link to my past is now gone….
When I wanted to be close to my David….he was never futher away than the sound of Laura’s voice.
Joy and happiness were brought back from the yesterdays…and we were at once young again….and the world was ours. Now…the tears the sound of your voice brings…will be forever twice-fold…and with a chorus of angels…
I love you, Laura…
and….David,my partner in crime, David…always in my heart.
Although I saw you in two concerts, I never had the nerve to go up and personally say Hi…I didn’t want to be annoying…now I’m sorry I never did.
Just like everyone here, I will sorely miss you, but I know you’re with your dad, brother and Larry…thank you for sharing your voice with the world and leaving us wonderful memories…God bless…:)
I just found today out she passed away, and I’m in shock. I never met her, I never saw her live, but as an 80’s kid she touched my life and she was my first idol. I remember Gloria, Solitare, and my ultimate personal favorite ‘Self Control’.
God bless you Laura, your talent, voice and beauty will live on forever…
The best voice in the music industry!! Laura you moved the heart and soul with your incredible voice.May you rest in peace and sing with the angels.With your music you will always be by my side.
I had the honor and privilege of both seeing Laura live at the Westbury music fair concert for the Laura Branigan Tour and I met her at the Hamptons during the time that Self Control album came out. She is a special lady that will give the time to a stranger to and spend time with her fans as I found out I was a teenager then and she MADE MY DAY!! I got her autograph, and spent some time with her. The only regrets I have is that since then I moved 3000 miles away and was not able to move everything with me, and had to leave my autograph and my albums behind 🙁 I just have all my memories of the day to cherish in my head to remember. She won’t be forgotten!!! I also want to express my condolences to Lauras family. – Ilyssa
How am I suppose to live without you. Thanks for the songs and memories.
my son called me to tell this sad news..I remember feeling so hurt for her..I remember her trials with her husband. I also remember how devasted she was by what she saw in Africa. I remember she broke both legs when she was trying a come back career.. I remember all of her music. In my heart this woman was my friend. I truly felt love for her. Her music could move you to tears, because she sang from her heart and her soul. There will never, ever be another “LAURA BRANIGAN”
I am shocked and sadden by laura’s passing. She had a beautiful voice, and she was a beautiful woman. We will miss her forever.
I am so shocked and sadden to hear one of my favorites has passed at such a young age. She had beauty and talent. May she rest in peace. God Bless you Laura.
Eu estou, arrasado,pois amo esta mulher mais que tudo.Pe
I Was Utterly Shocked To Hear Of This From Me Mum About her Passing Away AT 47…..I Have Always Hoped One Day That Laura Branigan Would Get The Chance To Carry Her Torch….Such A Great Singer And Person……They Dont Make Singers Like That Any More….The Only Good Thing About Her Passing Is That Finally She Can Be With Her Husban That Passed A Few years Early….Some Times Angeles Have To Leave A Little Bit Early………Love Dreamer
You left in autumn
The leaves were turning
I walked down roads of orange and gold
I saw your sweet smile
I heard your laughter
You’re still here beside me every day
Oh it was so sad to know about Laura
I will miss Laura greatlty! I absolutely loved her voice and music! What an incredible singer this world has lost! I can’t think of anyone with such power and emotion. She touched me deeply. She had so many great songs on her albums! Gloria started it all for me. I remained a fan to the end. Such a shame we lost her so young! May her Music live on forever!!Nobody else has ever left such an impact on my life! God Bless Laura, she now sings with the angels!
I too was saddened to hear of the untimely passing of Laura Branigan. I was part of her generation when she burst on the scene with such hits as Gloria, Self Control, Ti Amo, Daddys got a squeeze box, and so many more. She will truly be missed. Too all her family and loved ones may you rest assured that God truly has her in the front row of the choir singing lead Angel.
God Bless, and rest peacefully dear Laura. We will all miss and love you forever. Jeffrey.
Shocked & Saddened, in a daze, still hard to believe, a wonderful talent cut down in the prime of her life-LAURA BRANIGAN, you will be truly missed by all that have been with you throughout the incredible career that you have had-from GLORIA to THE WINNER TAKES IT ALL and everything in between. SOLITAIRE is my favorite song in the entire world and TOUCH is my favorite album(though I love all your albums). I met Laura in Pittsburgh PA when she gave a concert at Point State Park. After the concert was over she went back to her hotel and I followed her back, actually ran from PSP to the hotel, got there and to my amazement she was standing alone. The only thing I said to her was, can I give you a kiss, and she let me. I will never forget that as long as I live. Stupid me did not ask for her autograph. LAURA will live in my heart forever-FOREVER YOUNG is what she will be, a true ANGEL-ANGELS CALLING…and thats what they did, took her home to sing with them. For one day we shall meet again. Rest in peace.
What a sad time for the music industry. Laura was truly gifted beyond words. I loved her song “Cry Wolf”. She had such power and emotion in her voice. In a time where today singers are mass produced to sound like everybody else it was so refreshing to have a voice the nobody can reproduce! I am saddened by this all too early loss and pray for her family and friends. God bless you Laura and may he take care of you…Go Rest High on that Mountain.
A very special singer who is sadly missed. Hopefully WEA will re-release some of her earlier albums.
SHE WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITES SINGERS OF ALL THE TIME. SHE WAS A GREAT DIVA, WITH A BEAUTIFUL VOICE AND SHE GAVE REAL MOMENTS OF JOY, HAPPINESS AND WITH ALL HER GREATEST HITS LIKE: GLORIA, SELF CONTROL, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO LIVE WITHOUT YOU, THE LUCKY ONE, THE POWER OF LOVE, SHATTERED GLASS, DIDN’T WE ALMOST WIN IT ALL, ETC. I WAS REALLY SAD ABOUT HER DEATH AND I CAN’T BELIEVE IT. I WOULD LIKE TO REMEMBER ABOUT HER BEAUTY AND GREAT VOICE THAT NOBODY CAN EVEN COMPARES WITH NOBODY ELSE, SHE WAS THE ONE.
JUAN MANUEL SALAZAR ORTIZ
I will always love you Laura!!!!
I still can’t believe she is gone. This month has been hell on me, and I will never forget her.
I will always love you.
I am crushed.
When I was in Jr High and High School I use to see her sing on Solid gold and I listen to her music. I was deaply in love with her and the way she sang. I just found out that she is dead and I wish to god that I didn’t that way I would still think that she was alive. I will truly miss her.
I can’t believe it been a month now since Laura was taken away from us.She meant so much to me & I will miss her dearly. It’s so hard to say goodbye,but it’s not really goodby it’s until we met in heaven. God bless you Laura. I will never forget you,you will live on forever in my heart. Always & forever Laura’s fan,Carol
“Its been hard enough getting over you.
You know you kept me holding on til the end.
Oh its been hard enough getting over you.
I dont think that I could say goodbye again…”
Love you Laura,
Thanks for all the wonderful music, rocking it out or bringing me to tears. And thanks for being REAL.
Your voice, your words, your power will never be forgotten.
RIP Laura…..I know you’re up in heaven singing with the angels….
The news of Laura Branigan
We will miss you Laura rest in piece on this Labor Day weekend.
I’ll miss You,Laura, but You’re voice still alive.
A powerful voice, leaves powerful memories. Thank you.
What else can be said? She was the best, and I miss her every day.
Laura we love your songs on CD includes Self Control,Gloria,Solitare and the Lucky One.
we will miss you when you be laid to rest
I was shocked and saddened about Laura’s seemingly far too early passing. She was just the type of person that seemed like she’d be around forever. A little over a month later, I’ve recovered a bit from the initial shock, but the inside loss is always gonna be there.
In 1984/85, I was barely a toddler when I heard “Self Control” on the radio, which (along with many 80’s artists, such as Huey Lewis) cemented my childhood musical memories. In the early 90’s, I saw the “Moolight on Water” video, as well as an appearence on The Tonight Show.
I never would’ve dreamed this decade’s major news would be of this tragedy. Consequently, I feel like a small part of me died too.
We should remember her as a nice, caring and fun person, as well as a singer that could be sad yet uplifting (How am I Supposed to Live Without You), rock out (Hot Night), tell someone off and move on, with emotion and conviction (Cry Wolf, Over Love), or all three (Solitaire).
Even though a world without Laura Branigan is a slightly sadder, lonelier one, I’m going to try to remember her life more than her death (hard as that will be). Most likely, that’s what she’d want us to do.
The news of Laura’s death caused my heart to sink and I found myself saying, “Oh my God, why?”
For years, Laura’s music has been with me through the good and the sad times. Her powerful voice and beautiful songs echo in my head constantly, even when I am not playing them.
I will never forget Laura, the person who put family first, or her music. My life is better for having had Laura and her music in it. Thank you Laura!
What a sad time and a loss of talent, I followed her music and concerts since the early 1980s,meeting her at the Front Row theatre in 1985 a great lady. She always gave 110% effort. We will always remember her,and she will live on with her music.
What shocking news I received last week about one of my old time favorite singers. She will be greatly missed and being an 80’s child, I will never forget the wonderful songs that Laura sang about. I remember when I first moved to California and I saw Laura on a New Years Eve special (I believe it was Dick Clark). And I thought, what an awesome singer! Although at that time I must have been 8 years old. She instantly became a favorite singer of mine. I still have some of her original LP’s and I will make sure to cherish them.
i was in shock when i heard that laura had passed away.her album hold me brings back brillant memories of my childhood when my parents played it in car all the time.
may the force be with her always
OH MY GOD! I was away in mid-August.and just found out on the same day Reeves passed on.
“The Lord hath called His child, the Angels in Heaven rejoice for Their sister awaits at the gates…”
I’LL NEVER FORGET HER
“NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS…”
LAURA: GRACIAS POR TU MUSICA Y POR LOS HERMOSOS RECUERDOS QUE ELLA ME DEJ
I am ashamed to say I just found out about Laura’s death now. I was talking about how much I love Laura’s music and then my husband dropped the devastating news on me! Laura, your music touched my soul and I will cherish all your albums and cd’s, and beautiful voice forever. You are so missed! May god bless you and your family. TI AMO GOD HOW I LOVED YOU SO. MY HEART JUST WON’T LET GO.
Alguien de Sudam
I feel like a Ice on my heart, she’s got all everthing of us, she left us alone.
Goodbye sewwt girl I miss you so much.
Laura…You truely had the greatest voice in the music industry.You sang with such compassion and feelings.Your voice and music helped me through many bad times in my life. You will always be a inspiration and part of my life. Thank you for what you gave in such a short time. “Never in a million years” could I forget. “Even though there may be times..I seem so far away…Don’t ever wonder where I am for I as always be your side.” Love Always and Forever…Jay
its an amazingly sad even losing a talent such as Laura Branigan, but we not only lost an elusive and captivating young woman, but a friend that we all found in her through her music and her smile. She will forever live on, but we must realize now, she is so very happy and so very loved, she has reunited with the love of her life and is watching over the ones that loved her. la bonne nuit mes ange
Laura,you were one of my favourite singers. One of the best voices i’ ve ever heard.
I remember i was in love with you in my 12 when i first saw you performing Gloria on Tv.
May you rest in peace.
I will miss you so much and whenever i will listen to your songs my thoughts will be with you.
A fan from Greece
I just knew the very bad and sad news going to her web site. I am extremely shocked. It was hard to have some news from her in the past (I’m a French fan), but always keep an eye on her career and on some news. Some days ago I saw her latest EP and I wanted to know more about that. And now I can’t believe what happened. I love her music for such a long time that I thought she was part of my life. But now I’ll miss her so much. One of my favorite singer has disappeared and it’s like the music was died.
“We take a chance on love
A dream that lasts forever
We’re only flesh and blood
Throwing coins in a wishing well”…
I loved Laura since the beginning of her career and I started to love her again very much a few months before her death. I won an original autographed T-Shirt of her and when I got it on August 27, I never thought that she passed away the night before. I will always cherish her memory with true love and I believe that she’s now singing with the angels.
God bless you, Laura…
Although she passed away 4 months ago, I
Laura Braningan is one of the most important dance divas in history of music, but she’s also one of the best ballad performers ever. She will always be remembered through many generations………..
May she be now singing with the angels
As I sit hear listening to Laura’s beautiful rich voice, the pain of her passing hurts me terribly. I will always love her.
AME A LAURA, POR ESO MI HOMENAJE EN MI PROGRAMA DE TV, CINEMANIA, CON TODAS SUS CANCIONES, Y SU PARTICIPACION EN FLASHDANCE, CON EL TEMA, LIBERACION.
LA RECORDARE POR SIEMPRE…
WOW! I CAN NOT STILL BELIEVE SHE IS GONE!! SHE WAS MY IDOL! I HAVE ALL HER 80’S ALBUMS (ON VINYL)SHE WAS A INSPIRATION TO ME WHEN I WAS A TEENAGER MY PARENTS WERE GETTING A DIVORCE AND SHE WAS THE ONE WHO GOT ME THROUGH IT! THANKS LAURA FOR THE MUSIC!!! I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER LAURA! MAY SHE REST IN PEACE…..
My favorite singer of her era, perhaps of all time–she meant much to me, whenever one of her beautiful songs came on the radio–especially Self-control, a song that I would never grow tired of hearing from a singer that truly inspired many fans and myself. I had no idea she’d died until the other day, and I’m really crushed. Think of Laura for the joy and love she gave us–I know she’d want it that way.
She was and always will be the best singer of the 80’s, and one of the most amazing voices i’ve ever heard in my life.
If you can listen to her albums, because they are pure pop gems.
From the 1982’s branigan trough Self Control, Touch, to the 93’s Over My Heart.
May You rest in peace
Weird as it seems but I just found out yesterday about her death. What a great loss.
I also found out just this past weekend. It’s strange because I’m usually up on the passing of famous people. My uncle told me that he saw a tv show on who died this past year and she was on the list. Definitely will be missed. A true voice of the 80s like others have said.
Gracias por tus canciones, por tu alegr
rest in peace laura
I have just heard of Laura’s passing 12/22/04 how sad it has made me, Gloria will forever be a graet song, sung by a pro you were one of the best your name will always be linked with great singers such as Elvis, Roy Orbison,& Janis Joplin your music, voice and talent boom with power, yet as graceful as guardian angels.
THE HEAVENS ARE ONCE AGAIN FILLED WITH GLORY!!!!!
I happened to be in line at a grocery store last night, and saw Laura Branigan’s face in the “those who died in 2004” section of People magazine’s 2004 year-end edition. Shocking how the news of a death of someone like this takes so long to trickle down to everyone. I remember not finding out about Robert Palmer until he had been gone for over 8 months, and he was a HUGE star. Wow, I loved her music.
From a fellow “Laura”
Laura will be missed
may heaven enjoy her beautiful voice and spirit
i bought every album she released she was the only artist in the 80’s and 90’s and until this date that i tried to buy everything she released
condolences to her family…john
Oh, my God, I can
hi laura i will really miss yu yu bring me happiness when im sad and blue listening to yur music an d watching yr videos makes my spirit rise yu will really be miss luv rich from la
she was the one and only in their style, no one like her anymore. I have sadness, very sad… LAMENTO MUCHO SU PERDIDA, it
PARA MI ESTO HA SIDO UNA MUY DESAGRADABLE SORPRESA, LA MUERTE DE MRS. LAURA BRANIGAN ME HA DEJADO MUY TRISTE Y MUY DEPRIMIDO, DEMASIADO…
HA SIDO COMO SI ME HUBIERA ENTERADO DE LA MUERTE DE MI ESPOSA, DE UNA NOVIA, UN FAMILIAR: UNA HERMANA POR EJEMPLO.
NUNCA NADIE LA SUPERARA YA QUE FUE UNICA EN SU GENERO, ME DUELE EL QUE HAYA FALLECIDO, ME DUELE BASTANTE.
ME DUELE TANTO COMO LAS MUERTES DE ROBERT PALMER, BENJAMIN ORR DE THE CARS Y FALCO, SIN OLVIDAR A OTROS GRANDES COMO LOS RAMONES Y EL FALLECIDO VOCALISTA DE THE CLASH.
PERO LA MUERTE DE LAURA ME DUELE MUCHO MAS DE LO QUE IMAGINAN PUES, YO CRECI CON SU MUSICA Y CON SU INFLUENCIA.
LAURA: TU MUSICA ME LLENO SIEMPRE DE ALEGRIA, SIENDO UN NI
I have always listen to Laura. Her songs makes me happy. I love songs like Self Control, Ti Amno and always like Laura’s version of How am I supposed to live without you….Love & Lots of misses to you Laura…
Just heard of Laura Branigan’s death today. My sympathy goes out to those who were close to her. Her songs were an important part of my life in the ’80’s. May the angels be a guide.
I didn’t know that she had passed away. She was a great inspiration to (of all people) the aerobic society. Her song “Gloria” was a particular success. So sorry to hear of her death.
The most greatest female singers just passed away….like that…..its to sad.
She was the one, the most popular singer in my heart and soul.
Will always remember….
I feel so sad. I grew up with your music, and when I hear one of your songs in the radio, your voice brings happy memories from my tennage years.
You will be always in me heart, classy Lady.
I never had the chance to make time to buy more of Laura’s heart wrenching music. She was A DECADE ahead of Celine Dion, with an equivalent gift. I found out about her passing just today; sorry that life keeps us from grieving ontime.
We will miss you Laura you had a great voice and we loved to hear you sing. your voice will live on 4-ever. favorite songs are (Gloria ) and (self control)
We miss you so much RIP
Shocked & Saddened! I’ve been in Egypt since early AUG and didn’t know this until the FOX Yearend Show. WOW wasn’t she the best (singer & looker) of the 80’s – my young man fantasies. She will be missed – It feels like I lost my old love. Peace.
I am truly shocked and saddened by the passing of Laura. My mother passed away the same way as Laura and I know how quickly it happens.
I followed her career well into the 90’s and loved her voice and music.
She will be missed. Rest in peace.
“A rose among many thorns”
Aunque todas las notas estan en ingles, esta es en espa
I had no idea she passed away so sudden, she was so young. She was a very talented singer. I will miss her!
I heard of her death on Fox News’s Year In Review, I was shocked to hear about it. She was such an amazing singer with a singular talent. I used to listen to “Self-Control” as a toddler and would start to sing in excitement. She will be missed.
Rest in Peace Laura. Your angels are calling you in heaven…You will be missed!
i was shocked to hear about We never forgot you. We will miss you. Bye… İ am from Turkey, İstanbul. See you soon…Will always remember….
oh my god, thants all i could think when i learned of laura’s death, i fell in love with her and her voice. i always felt she was there in my heart when times were not good to me.
my daughters were born listening to her music. they are the next generation to love her.
i will miss her dearly
It has been almost 5 months now since we lost this most precious gift and the sadness is just as painful as the day she left us. I feel some comfort in the fact that she has left us such a treasure with her recorded voice that will be with us forever. I have been a major fan of Laura’s from the moment I first heard that beautiful voice back in the 80’s. I have the wonderful memory of meeting Laura during a promotionl tour for the Laura Branigan album back in 1990, that great album with the moving song “Never In A Million Years”. She was signing autographs and I was lucky enough to speak with her for a few minutes and to have her sign my two favorite albums, the above mentioned album and my very favorite “TOUCH”. Laura was more than just a singer, her voice, in my case anyways, has the ability to move my soul from the inner depths each and every time I hear her. She was a true artist! I have never heard a voical performance like that of hers on “The Power of Love”! It gives my chills each time I hear it, it is as close to perfection and one can get!! My all time favorite song of Laura’s is “Cry Wolf”, this song gets me everytime!! I feel as if I have lost a dear, dear friend, I guess in a way I have, for she has been with me thru my life, helping me with her music and her voice, a voice that was heaven sent!

I am deeply saddened over the loss of our Laura.Losing her is a big blow but she has certainly left her mark.She was a lovely,talented human being and will be missed dearly.It’s a beautiful thing bringing joy to people’s lives even in her passing as she does through her music.Thank you Laura,you’ve made the world a nicer place to be and I’ll never forget you.Love you girl!
Laura was and always be my inspiration in my live i loved her.
She was a beautyfull person on the inside and the outside.
I will miss her forever
It’s amazing that in this time and age, news such as this (so sad) get to us months later.
I remember Laura as the ultimate fantasy when I was a teenager in the early 80’s. Her voice, her eyes, her face and her songs. What an inspiration!
I was really lucky to hear your voice in the 80’s.
Almost everything is been said in all this tributes and all I can say to your family is that:
Angels with great voices are taken earlier!
(to sing to us when we all finally get home)
How can I supposed to live without you? You have the best voice, you speak from your heart to mine, and I just can’t believe God had taken you from us. Just now you can see how many people loves you and adores you, if one day you had doubts about it. We still crying.
How can it happen? Nobody believes, it’s an absurd, unbeliaveble. We just pretend you took a trip and we wait you come back soon…
Love, all my love and from all members of Laura Branigan comunity on Orkut.
God Bless You And Keep You Warm…
I JUST HEARD ON THE LOCAL RADIO STATION HERE IN CANADA’S CAPITAL THAT LAURA BRANIGAN HAD DIED – I AM IN SHOCK – I FIRST HEARD OF HER FROM THE MUSIC ON A MOVIE WHICH STARRED BARRY BOSTWICK – THE CLOSING SONG WITH THE CREDITS WAS “THE LUCKEY ONE” WHICH PROMPTED ME TO BUY HER FIRST ALBUM – I DONT THINK SHE WAS KNOWN YET – I LOVED HER MUSIC AND AM DEEPLY SADDENED BY THE SORROW IN HER LIFE WITH HER HUSBAND OF WHICH I KNEW NOTHING ABOUT UNTIL 10 MINUTES AGO. MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO HER AND HER HUSBAND’S FAMILIES.
I was only in the single digits during the 80’s when I heard “Gloria” on the airwaves. Years later I hear a song on the radio and in the song’s lyrics it said “self control”. The name of the artist who sung “Self Control” eluded me for a long time until tonight and I find out it was from Laura Branigan. So right off the bat I check out my oldest brother’s cd collection and there it was. I go to some websites to look up some info on her and they mention that she had passed away in August 2004. I couldn’t believe it :-(. May you rest in peace and my deepest sympathies to her family and friends.
“Oh the night is my world
City lights painted girls
In the day nothing matters
It’s the night time that matters”, I am listening to her song in her memory…….God Bless.
Quite a big shock, and sad to know that she will not sing anymore. However, she lives in our hearts through her tender voice. I’ll miss laura branigan everytime i listen to Mama, every beat of my heart, hold me, foolish lullaby, never in a million years and so many other great songs. I hope she rests in peace now.
Where was I? I only heard about Laura’s death yesterday morning just before going to work. I must say that it was a shock and throughout the day my thoughts were with Laura and what happened. It’s hard to believe that she’s gone.
I was turned onto Laura’s music back in the 80’s while in high school in Jamaica. There was this dejay who just loved her music and it was not uncommon for her to play two to three Branigan songs at a time! I even managed to see her live at Westbury Music Fair on Long Island back in 1988 and thoroughly enjoyed it. She had no back up singers, played the piano herself and sounded just great.
I loved her beautiful, powerful, emotional voice but always felt that she deserved far more recognition and success than she received for her tremendous talent.
Laura, here’s hoping that you are up there singing with the angels and have been reunited with the husband you loved and took care of until he passed in 1996.
Will never forget you!
We mis you and your nice songs.
We always remember you !!!!!
Greatings from The Netherlands.
Even though it has been 5 months since you have passed Laura, I find myself listening to “Gloria” at this moment. I grew up with you and your music. I miss you dearly and will see you soon. Love ya.
Laura , I bet you will make angels more happy with your songs and sweet voice! Love you!
Zeca , fico triste por voce! contact me!
One of the greatest voices in the world is gone.But talent never dies.Like an angel passing thru the wheels of time,I will never forget the lady with the golden voice.So sensitive,so beautiful.May you rest in peace.You will always be there…in my heart.
From France with love
I was watching the Grammy’s tonight, 2/13/05 and was saddended to learn of the passing of Laura. She was only 5 years older than I and I loved her music of the 80’s. She will be sorely missed and will be known for her beauty, her wonderful music, charisma, charm and extroardinary talent. May God bless you Laura and my condolences to your family and friends.
I just found out tonight on Feb. 13, 2005 that this talented artist died. I remember her song Gloria. She had a voice that you will never forget. I was just shocked when I was watching the Grammy Award Show. She will be missed. I really loved her music.
SHE WILL BE MISSED!!! WE WERE WATCHING THE GRAMMYS AND THEY WERE HONOURING ALL THE ARTISTS THAT HAVE PASSED IN THE PAST YEAR OR SO AND “BOOM”IT HIT US LIKE A ROCK!!! THAT TOTALLY RUINED OUR NIGHT BECAUSE IT JUST SHOCKED MIRA AND I!!!WE WERE SPEECHLESS!! TO LAURA’S FRIENDS AND FAMILY!!MY SYMPATHIES!!! I WILL PRAY FOR HER SOUL TONIGHT!!!!
REST IN PEACE LAURA BRANIGAN!!!
YOU WERE LOVED AND WILL BE MISSED ALOT!
FROM:MIRELLA&LUIS ESCALEIRA THORNHILL,ONTARIO CANADA
I did not hear of Laura’s deathe till last night on the Grammy’s!!!! I am shocked,numb and totally sad over this. I loved her music but I didn’t hear much from her after the 80’s. To me she had the voice of an angel and the face and personality of one. Now she is singing with God’s choir and I bet showing the other angels how to really sing. May flight of angels sing thee to thy rest Laura…you will and are missed terribly:-(((((
Laura has been a huge part of my life since I was a kid back in ’83, and will be till the day I die. I will never ever forget those live shows I had the pleasure to attend in Uruguay in 2000, and how warm and kind she was to us after the shows, hugging, kissing and signing autographs.
It’s been several months since she died, but I sitll can’t understand why she had to leave so soon.
I’m sure there will never be anyone like her, that beautiful, such a great woman and who can sing or give on stage what she gave.
I will miss her forever.
Such a tragic loss for Americans. Too talented to have her life cut so short. I pray you are singing with God’s angels, Rest in peace.
i am Laura Branigan fan from Palestine – middle east … in fact Laura’s death is a loose for the whole world ….. i just read the news and i feel soooo sad because Laura Branigan is almost a firest voice i heard when i started feel emotions in the songs … her wonderful voice is unsubestetutable …. never wanted to hear any thing bad happen to Laura… bye bye Laura Branigan … you and your voice and songs will live inside people for ever… you are the Best Laura Branigan
What an amazing voice! I had a very good friend fron high school who died of the same thing…it was very sad. Laura’s powerful voice and delivery will always be stamped in our minds when ever we hear the name…Laura Branigan or “Gloria”. There is some incredible band in heaven. Now she really is an angel.
I don’t know where I’ve been all these months not to have heard about her death. I really can’t believe this! I remember dancing and singing to her songs growing up & thinking she was so pretty and sweet. I wanted to be just like her. It’s so sad that she was taken too soon…
tell me how am i suppose to live without u laura!u were the most wonderful solo artist i’ve never seen before.fairwell sweet friend of us,we part to meet in heaven above.God be with u ’till we meet again!!!MAY U’RE SOUL REST IN PEACE…
Kind, loving & gentle
We met, spoke, shared stories, lost loves and new beginnings…I will always remember!
Be at peace lovely Laura.
So very sorry to hear a while ago of Laura’s passing. I love her music – and first heard it in the 80’s when my (now) ex-husband gave me the tape of Hold Me. The tape got worn out over the years, but I was thrilled recently to be able to purchase a very rare CD of Hold Me. It reminds me of a lovely time in my life. Thanks for everything Laura,
I had just found out about Laura the night of the Grammys on feb 13th 05 on my birthday!
This was the worst birthday of my life!!!
Never in a million years…Touch, Ti a mo such
wonderful memories you gave us all Laura…You will live in all our hearts forever…I wished I had got to meet you or see u live….but I know I will see you with the angels in heaven sharing your amazing voice there…I know they are rejoicing to have you there..but we miss you here
the gift you left us is your wonderful voice that we will treasure forever!!!! Peace to your family..
We will never forget you…NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS!
GLORIA, THAT’S MY NAME, THAT’S MY SONG. THANK YOU FOR THAT WONDERFULL SONG, FOR THAT WONDERFULL LYRIC… YOU WILL BE NEVER FORGET…
Whenever I watch “Flashdance”, I can hear “Gloria” and think of Laura.
Now you are an angel in the heaven.
All love of your fans.
God bless you.
Lamento esta grande perda
I was stunned when I heard of Laura’s death. She had one of the most powerful and beautiful voices ever. Her voices is now one with the angels. I will miss her music.
“Midnights in Winter
The glowing fire
Lights up your face in orange and gold.
I see your sweet smile
Shine through the darkness
Tracing it’s line in my memory.
jesus called you home to be with him. you will be sadly missed but we will all be togather again one day. sing with the angels!! god bless you.
missyou so much as i heard cd in my car played gloria and others song sung by you. be happy with Jesus till we meet again someday.
I must have been a sleep because today i found out that Laura is gone. I don’t know where i was and why I didn’t hear it but I am so sadden with her passing. I don’t think its fair that someone so healthy just goes like that. I love your song Gloria, and you will always be remembered. May God keep you safe with him always, and your face your music and your great love for the world, will live here on earth always.
I grew up listening to Laurs’s music and she made me want to be a singer. She was wonderful and will greatly be missed.
You will truely be missed Laura.
Both yourself and your voice was and will always be an inspiration.
You will never be forgotten.
It’s been about eight months now since we’ve lost a talent such as Laura’s. I don’t believe she was a woman of sadness, her eyes said it all. She was more then a singer, actress, songwriter, and musician. She was the power and inspiration behind the eyes, the smile and the warmth she showed on a daily basis. She very much included everyone in her life, right down to her fans, which made her unique. I am happy for her now, after having felt sadness for so long within myself. She has joined her very own angel and now she and her husband both can see just how much they truly meant to all. I think we should thank God for giving us Laura and her talents, and be grateful that she will forever be in our hearts. Her dreams, her fantasies, her smile, her heart, and her eyes will live on along with her amazing voice. Even her realities will live on. God bless you Laura.
NO SEW COMO DECIR PERO LA EXTRA
Siempre te voy a recordar ya que vives y viviras por siempre dentro de mi, fuiste parte importante de mi vida y de mi generaci
I’ve just realize you’re dead. Well, I know no one’s gonna forget you, you’d been the best and I hope you rest in peace for ever.
She had a wonderful voice and I’ve always been touched by “How Am I Supposed…” Truly there are many great singers who get into their songs but only some of the great arias have ever spoken to me as she did in “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You.” The first time I heard it was one of the few times anyone has ever gotten the lyrics though to me so rapidly. The world is less of a place sans Laura. As many others have said, “God bless you, Laura.” Surely you’ve blessed us.
Im sorry for the family’s loss i know that she is in heaven waiting on the rest of u to meet her there. My wife believs she has the same thing but how do i tell if she has already had one or not please help me calm her troubled mind.
To the Branigan Family,
A very tragic loss, gone but not forgotten.
Her music lives on!!!
Rest in peace Bella
Laura is missed so much!! 10 months have passed since this beautiful, so very talented singer has left us! I play her music still all the time and Collect everything Laura!! What an awesome singer she was! Maybe more will discover what a True Gem she was! As her birthday nears July 3rd (what would have been her 48th)I plan on playing her Music All Day!(In tribute) Without a doubt My Favorite Female Singer of all time!! There will Never be another like Laura Branigan!
It was my Sister who had given me the News and had taken me a while to sink in.
Such a beautiful classy lady.
I never saw a concert but saw her numerous times on television.
My favorite was her performance of “FOREVER YOUNG“
I saw her doing the NEW YEARS special several years back.
My all time favorite remains
WHEN IM WITH YOU.
Long live her music & beautiful memories forever….xxxxx
Gloria you mentioned when your Brother passed away he joined the Angels so now you`ve joined him too.
May you well be taken care of.
You had a beautiful voice. I heard “self control” the other day on the radio and had to hear it again. It brought back great memories and the magic I felt when I first heard it back in the 80’s. You truely went before your time. You will be remembered by humanity forever.
I miss you!!!
Life is unfair!!!
You had so much to give!!!
SIEMPRE TE ADMIRE TE ADMIRO Y TE ADMIRARE. GRACIAS LAURA POR HABER PUESTO EN LAS LETRAS DE TUS CANCIONES TODO TU SENTIMIENTO. HASTA SIEMPRE. JUAN. CUSCO PERU

I AM FROM IRAN AND I WAS CHOKED COMPLETELY WHEN I KNEW LAURA DIED I AM VERY VERY SORRY AND I AM COMPELETELY CHOKED I KNOW SHE IS IN PAREDISE
farsi=KHODA RAHMATASH KONAD AN AZIZE BOZORGVAR RA
I didn’t know she has death last year I liked her Her face her very nice voice her brown hair …
I hope she be well there.
Unfortunately I have just heard about this fantastic lady’s untimely death. I went to see her twice at Sun City when I lived in South Africa in the 80’s and was blown away by her performance and powerful voice. Life really is unfair – she had so much still to give. She will be sorely missed by her fans but her voice and songs will live on forever! RIP Laura x
Just learnt you have left us…imagine that! The 70s and 80s produced the best music ever. You were one those who made this possible. I shall always miss you.
A year since she died and I know I’ll miss her forever. Not one day has passed without me thinking of her beautiful smile and her powerful voice.
I was unaware of her death until it was mentioned on Friday, August 26th, 2005 on XM 80’s on 8 and the one year anniversary. I started in radio when “Gloria” came out and it always remained one of my favorites bringing back a lot of early radio memories. Great artist, great voice. She will be missed.
“Ti amo”,… this song keep me young, and it make me to remember my first love.It’s hard to say…goodbye…I love you Laura, and I miss you. Costel Furnica – Romania
I just recently learned of her passing and have been listening to her ever since. I’ve always loved “Self Control” and “Gloria”. We miss you Laura, hopefully we’ll all get to see you again one day.
I still can’t believe it. I am sure you’re an angel now, Laura. Thank you for all the songs you made !!! We are “THE LUCKY ONES” !!!
I’m just now finding out about this and I have to say that 2004 was a pretty crappy year for everyone. Back on April 9th of the same year, Weird Al Yankovich lost his parents and alot of bad mojo was in the air…I just wanted to say how saddened I was to learn of this. I loved Laura Branigan and yes, she had a tremendous voice and I’m still in shock. 🙁
I have only just found out about the death of Laura Branigan,and i’am stunned.I don’t think the british press cottoned on to this tragedy.Anyway i always remember my dad playing ‘Gloria’ when i was a child and when i hear it played nowadays it reminds me so much of that time. RIP Gloria and thanks for those memories
all the world will miss Laura! Oh my God!!! May God confort us!!!! Good bye Laura Branigan!
Laura is forever. Her body may have failed her, but her spirit will never diminish. Her voice carries on so please, dear fans, don’t be sad, for she is not. She is free, as will we be all.
HELLO!!! — Everyone…
I still can’t get passed the death of Laura. What a tragedy!!! So talented and she had some much more to offer for the future for her fans…
Would anyone out there know how I could get the lyrics to her final mini CD “Remember Me???”
Please send me an e-mail directly at my address. Thank You!!!
I’m sure Laura is singing beautifully with the angels above…
I never saw laura in concert, but always listened to her lps, I will never get over her passing, Laura was a gem, a talent,angel and an inspiration to everyone. When ever I hear her music I always smile and feel her presence.pause………,my condolences to her mom
brothers,sister,Laura you were everything to me
I will never forget you, You were part of my life
All the girls that are named laura have been nice

thank you, Laura for your music and your time with us on earth. May heaven welcome you with open arms for the angel that you are. Wayne.
Laura – I always loved listening to you on radio and bought all your records and Cds as they came. You created such passionate, timeless music with your beautiful voice and musical talents. I will miss you forever. Ti Amo – Sincerely, Hugo
On a search for Laura’s “Forever Young”. I came upon this site.
I never knew of her passing, Until now, not very often do tears run down my cheeks, but this is one of those moments.
A fond memory rings in my mind. When Laura was on the Tonight Show, with Johnny Carson, signing the best version of “Forever Young” I have ever encounterd.
Somewhere in my basement archives of VHS tapes I have that recording. Its time to dig it out and digitize it so we all can hear it one more time.
With much sadness and tears,
I posted a tribute in August 2004 for a fan of Laura’s who passed away in April 2004. Her name was Mary. I am sure Laura is singing her heart out to her in heaven.Laura was the best to Mary!
Thank you Laura for all the music. You will have the sweetest voice in heaven.
R.I.P. LAURA & MARY
RECIEN HACE UNSO DIAS ME ENTERE QUE HABIA SIDO FALLECIDO … NUNCA JAMAS HABRA NADIE COMO ELLA
AHORA CANTARA JUNTO CON LOS ANGELES
yes.some songs will remain in hearts and thoughts.such as selfcontrol.i also love this song.it is interesting that some young people of new generation still listen to her songs.god bless her.
I’ve never met Laura, but my heart STILL aches with the loss a dear freind. I am so greatful for her music. As an artist, she poured so much of herself into her music, that even without lyrics, to hear Laura Branigan sing, is to know her and to be touched by her.
Laura, you are still missed this very day as the day i heard of your passing! I remember sitting at the computer on AOL. I saw the headlines on the opening screen. Singer Laura Branigan dies. I read it and wept. Just then the phone rang and it was my sister. She heard my distress and asked what was wrong. I told her that my all time favorite singer/performer Laura Branigan had died. We both shed tears together. She was in as much disbelief as i. I never tire of hearing your songs Laura. R.I.P.
Every once in a while
I’d see her smile
She’d turn my day around
A girl with those eyes
Could stare through the lies
And see what your heart was saying
Think of Laura but laugh don’t cry
I know she’d want it that way, hey, yeah
When you think of Laura
Laugh don’t cry
I know she’d want it that way
A friend of a friend
A friend ’til the end
That’s the kind of girl she was
Taken away so young
Taken away without a warning
Think of Laura but laugh don’t cry
I know she’d want it that way, hey, yeah
When you think of Laura
Laugh don’t cry
I know she’d want it that way
I know you and you’re here
In every day we live
I know her and well she’s here
I can feel her when I sing
Hey, Laura (Laura)
Where are you now
Are you far away from here
I don’t think so
I think you’re here
Taking our tears away
Think of Laura but laugh don’t cry
I know she’d want it that way, hey, yeah
When you think of Laura
Well, laugh don’t cry
I know she’d want it that way, hey, yeah
Well, I know she’d want it that way
(Want it that way)
Hey, Laura (Laura)
I know she’d want it that way
Hey, Laura (Laura)
I know you’d want it that way
Laura, you always will be live in my life.
Yours songs do parts of ours life
I really loved the song “gloria”.
still remember watching it in “flashdance” as an excited teenager in a movie hall in bombay in 1983.
and if all that singing talent is enough, i read now that she actually took a break from her career to tend to her ailing husband.
may her soul rest in peace.

me gustaria consegir la letra dela cancion i can see again,gracias
I still can’t belive she passed away.
She was a person that I never met in my life but because of her music it seems to me she was a friend.
But the most important thing to me is that she was a human being, and at that, one with a beatiful job, the one that make us feel great by just being alive, because her music was joy. For that I thank her.
As I said, never knew her, but gonna miss her.
Laura will truly be missed. She had one of the best voices in rock music. I have been truly amazed by her wonderful voice. I will never stop listening to her music, never in a million years!!!!!!!
I will always remember her coming on the Johnny Carson on his show back in the early 80’s. She was ready to jump his bones. She did anything to get ahead. I mean anything. Now every female pop star does this. Lets just say she never needed any supply of protien in her diet. Her talent will be missed
You have been my favorite vocalist from the first
song I ever heard of yours. I am hurting because
I have encouraged others to listen for your great
songs on the radio and they’ll know why I keep you at No.1. You will be sorely missed and If
anything good can be said for this situation it’s just that you are back with your loving hus-band once again. God bless you and you family.
Shit what can I say I too grew up with her music how vaurable are we
A terrible tragic loss of such a wonderful Singer / Actress – Technology is such a wonderful thing, so because of this, we are blessed that she will be with us forever !
Una gran voz y talento nunca mueren.
A great voice and talent never dies.
Love you Laura
om my laura…my guiding light my shinig star….you are now the angels above and with my dear maurice gibb….may you both sing your hearts out in heaven…love you always tess from fawkner
She sang from the heart….and I’m better for it.
i just found out Laura branigan hadd passed while downloadin her music! i am in shock. i grew up listening to all her music, she will be missed greatly. i am deeply saddened by the news!
I doubt anyone will ever be able to touch me the way Laura did when she sang. The music industry lost one of its biggest talents when Laura died!
Your voice, your music lent wings to our hearts!You may be silenced, but you and your powerful voice live on onr your may recordings. You are so missed.
Love you forever dear Laura
Tonight while downloading some of Laura Branigans, I went through what my peer 2 peer had to offer, which was not allot. I wondered to myself if Laura had done any song recently, that I was missing out on, I jumped off the P2P and got online and just tonight had found out that this great and gifted singer was dead. My heart sank and my throat got lumpy and all I could say was “no, no, not her, she was to nice and gifted to take away from us”! She played a real big part for my life when I was a young man, getting into music. She kind of aimed me in a certain music direction, in regards to my music likeing. My favorite song is “Lucky One”, that song gets my heart pumping. I am just sad to hear that she has gone, apart of me is really stunned to hear this news.
Thank you Laura for sharing your gifts of song and dance with the world. Now when I hear one of your works, it will hold more special meaning for me!
You will be missed………..
Apparently, you were a soulmate of mine, born July 3—-according to a book of mine and I saw your birthday today and then it hit me: I’ve thought a lot about you for past year wondering how you actually passed away, being so young and all. Maybe you were trying to give me a message of some sort. So I finally looked you up here. Maybe you’re around me. I wish I could sing like you could. You are probably still singing.
God be with you
April 13, 2006
I can’t believe here it is alost two years later, and I am just finding out about Laura Branigan! I am so shocked it’s not funny!! She was so young and so very talented. I will always remember her beautiful face and her beautiful voice!! It’s strange how someone just today told me I remind him of her. What a compliment. This is how unfortunately, I found out she died.
God Bless this beautiful lady with the beautiful voice, I will always, especially now, even more, listen over and over to all of your cd’s!!! I know your in heaven along now, with your husband and I know god will take good care of you!!
Angels belong with Angels!!!
Meet you in Heaven someday!
I’ve listening to your voice since I was a boy, and I fell in love with your music ever after.
Your ‘Gloria’ song is my companion one, and I’ve always kept it on my mind through the most difficult circumstances and the best moments I’ve had.
Thanks for everything you gave us. We will really miss you now… may peace be with you.
I was a fan from years ago as many of us were. I, to this day miss her. Hard to imagine our “Gloria” is gone. I have never had any singer’s death touch me in such a way as this. I was truly touched today when a customer of mine, (I manage a music store) bought a copy of “Remembe Me”. It truly struck a chord with me that will always be with me. Laura, I will sing with you again in person one day. Until then….Angels Calling…..Donny Houston
I am so glad to learn that you left us your gift of several songs you recorded before your untimely and sad death. I had no idea that any material had been released until a friend of mine was playing “The Winner Takes It All” on a cd compilation and i said where did you get that!?!? She sure did Abba proud by doing such an exciting arrangement! I’m glad to see you are still stirring people even in your absense. I’m glad that we all are joined together by the spirit of music and by your charmed life. I will forever miss and think of Laura. Her time was too short, her voice now buried in silence but her songs live forever in our hearts and on our cd’s and on our radio’s. Long live Laura thru her music . Peace to her family and friends. Peace to us all.
i grew up lisening to her music and i loved her voce and i will miss her and now i now she will be up there with are god and my mom and dad she will be missed love all ways your fan lita .
I DID NOT KNOW…TIL TODAY.
LAURA YOU WERE MY FIRST INSPIRATION ON BECOMUNG A DJ GLORIA WAS MY FIRST 45rpm RECORD ON MY DJ COLLECTION AND I WANT TO THANK YOU HOW YOU INSPIRE ME FOR WHAT I AM TODAY YOUR BEST DJ IN THE WORLD I WAS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR YOU TO DO A REMIX TOGETHER BUT YOU WERE ALWAYS ON THE RUN AND THAN YOU GOT MARRIED SO I WISH YOU A HAPPY WELLCOME IN HEAVEN WHERE YOU WILL BE SINGING WITH THE LORD IN HARMONY.
You were amazing! I was so saddened by your sudden death. You were taken much too soon from this world. I know in heaven you are singing your beautiful songs. We all miss you- you were the soundtrack to my life. I rememeber playing soliatire and the Power of Love (you had the best version of all.
We will you 🙁
Go bless you always-

You brought me joy hearing and seeing you perform live. You are sorely missed Laura and i am glad that you were apart of my life. R.I.P.
YOU HAVE BEEN ALWAYS MY CHILDHOOD ANGEL SINCE THE FIRST TIME I SAW YOU ON TV WHEN I WAS 8 YEARS OLD YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTON AND YOU WILL ALWAYS REMAIN IN MY HEART
I didnt know who was behind the sound “self control” but i remember listening to it when i was a kid, now i recall how it has been one of the greatest hits in 1984, just a song so powerfull, so different from anything else.. I found out about her death just now, i didnt know the singer, i knew the music by ears and i feel in such a sorrow, i am crying litterally as i am typing this 🙁 why ? why do the great, beautiful people have to go always ? why ? i am in shock, and her husband died too.. This is a wonderfull woman who worked hard to succeed and at the end she was taken away from us but (CRYING HEREE) why ? oh my God you will be missed so much Dear Laura, you were so beautiful and you still are, You represent my childhood and all the innocence i was living with back in the 80’s.. You are magnificient, you are a Princess and You will be remembered as such, WE LOVE YOU!

My name is Marco from Montreal and I was and still am a huge fan of Laura. When I found out about her passing, like everyone,I was in shock, howerer I keep her memory alive by listening to her songs. One of her last releases entitled: “The best was yet to come” says it all. You will live in our hearts forever Laura. All the best to her family, you should be extremely proud of the legacy Laura has left behind…
Marco from Montreal, Canada
She was a beautifull person with the voice of an angel , now shes singing for the angels…forever to be missed…
Laura Branigan, me llevará en el tiempo cuando en mis años de estudiante de secundaria hacíamos fiestas escondidas de nuestros padres. Y bailábamos hasta no poder con su inolvidable “Gloria” y nos enmorábamos con “Historia de amor”. Una voz inigualable e imborrable. Con toda la tecnología por delante hoy dia no hay ninguna cantante que pueda comparársele. Gloria Branigan, siempre será Gloria Braniga. Desde Venezuela.
En los años 80 cuando era una adolescente bailé y me enoamoré con la música de Laura Branigan. Muchos lo hicimos. Esa generación que creció con ella de la mano, escuchando su talentosa voz, bailando con “Gloria”, “Autocontrol” e incluyendo “Si tu eres mi hombre y yo tu mujer”, no sólo en Venezuela, sino en cada rincón del planeta, debemos agradecerle a Dios el privilegio de disfrutarla esa época maravillosa e inolvidable de nuestras vidas. Hoy día, a mis hijos les pongo las canciones de Laura Branigan para que también la conozcan y mis amigos cuando nos reunimos escuchamos esas viejas melodías para no olvidar lo maravilloso de la vida, de las experiencias, de los recuerdos. Y Laura Branigan, siempre será una parte de nuestras vidas, de esa época de primera juventud, de inocencia y ganas de vivir y bailar. Su muerte es sólo física, porque ella vivirá por siempre en sus letras, sus canciones y los momentos que nos lleva a evocar en el tiempo. Que Dios la ha haya reservado un lugar especial para alguien especial. Por Siempre, Laura.
Hi, I’m since many years a Laura Branigan’s fan. But I never found lyrics of the song “I can see agan” Is it possible somebody send me back that ?
Thank you very much…
When I saw Laura perform “How am I suppose to live without you?” on television I was hooked. Almost three years later and my heart is still heavy. She was a TRUE superstar!
i love ur many songs. i miss ur voice. i wish to u u very happy …
i love her song and also will miss her
I was so shocked and saddened by the untimely death of the great singer, Laura Branigan! I especially loved her songs, “Gloria” and “Self Control”! She had such an incredible voice, it was just amazing!! I loved it! She still had things left to do in the music world and elsewhere! It is just a shame she went so young!! She will be forever remembered and missed!! R.I.P.,Laura!! You were and are loved!!! “Wearing white as your walkin’ down the street of my soul”
I was really shocked and deepy saddened to know My greatest Singer & Angel had passed away. I am her number one fan. “Solitaire” Is My Favorite Song but it’s hard to pick one among so many beautiful song’s.
1, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow
2, Self Control
3, Ti Amo
4, Shattered Glass
7, What A Feeling
8, The Lucky One
9, Hot Night
12, Down like a Rock
13, Power of Love
14, I Need A Hero
And She had so many more Song’s
She was a beautifull person with the voice of an angel and will always be missed by everyone.
Here it is, 3 years on from your untimely death… and your voice still rings out… as those you were still performing for us here on Earth.
How I envy those Angels in Heaven… as you’re THEIR songstress now. Thrill them, girl! Make their hearts glow from the wonder of your God given talent.
Though you were working on new material back here on Earth, when you left us so suddenly… and it’s my hope that we’ll one day get to hear any of the songs that you may have completed… I will take comfort in the completed music you left behind. You were an AMAZING talent, Laura!
My condolences continue for your family – left behind to mourn your loss. You have my wishes, that you got to reunite with your husband whom you no doubt loved & mourned immensely yourself.
Again though… I envy those Angels!
I had the priviledge to watch Laura perform in South Africa on her tour in the 80″s. Tonight I sat and think about her. We so miss you and you left us with your beautifull voice so that we can always remember how special you were to all of us.
Rest in Peace Laura.
Ella era y seguira siendo y brillando como una estrella.
Like so many others, I have only recently found out of her passing three years ago, and it is an intense shock to me. I’m 41 and was a high shcool teenager when she broke out with Gloria. May she rest in peace alongside her beloved one. We love you Laura, always.
Oh my Gosh,…just went to google “Laura Branigan” to know why I haven’t heard from her in a while…and found out she died…3 years ago! oh God, how awful. She was one of the best singers ever. The song Gloria is one of my favorites. She will always be one of the best singers of all times. Oh my God, I am still shocked!
Tu voz a través de tus bellas canciones, al escucharlas nos hacen llorar y no nos permiten comprender, el porqué, cuando estabas en lo mejor de tu vida, algo hizo que desapareciera tu presente de nosotros, pero al mismo tiempo cada vez que escuchamos diversas canciones de otros intérptretes, una fuerza extraña, nos obliga a ir y pensar que tu bella voz, aún nos hace creer que estas muy cerca y nuestra mente y alma se conmueven hasta el fondo de nuestros sentimientos, porque nos has dejado en la pasíón y amor que entregastes profundamente en tus hermosas e inolvidables melodías, un punzante mensaje de tristeza que hace doler el corazón, pero a su vez, un mensaje al mundo, de lo bello que es vivir y lo doloroso que es tener que abandonar la vida, teniendo unas ansias tan sublimes y llenas de amor, de no haber podido entregar mucho, pero mucho mas, de todo lo que es riqueza espiritual, pura de bondades, de los seres humanos, que quieren lo mejor de un mundo, que esta lleno de injusticias, crimenes y desprecio por los mas débiles y por aquellos que solo desean la paz, paz que llegó a tí muy prematuramente, dejando inconclusa tu misión, de seguir llenando y transmitiendo a miles de quienes tuvimos la dicha de entender y sentir,todo tu amor, ternura y perdón, por tanto daño que nos hemos hecho entre todos nosotros.- El dolor que sentimos al recordarte, es igual a no entender, como nos estamos destruyendo cada día entre todos nosotros, nada mas por el poder, el odio, y la riqueza material, que es capaz de generar los tormentos mas grandes entre todos los seres humanos. C.G.L.C.
Que descanses siempre en paz y que tu alma que nos está mirando, se ampare de todos nosotros.
I heard about a year ago that Laura Branigan left this plain of existence. She was one of my favorite singers…she had such a strong and beautiful voice. You were only on this earth for a short time but you have left a legacy, your voice and songs live on…
alwayss remember GLORİA GOODBYYYYYYYYY HONEY
I JUST LEARNED OF YOUR PASSING,IT HURTS!
YOU WERE SO INCREDIBLE THE WAY YOU PERFORMED AND
TOUCHED SO MANY,I’LL ALWAYS HAVE SUCH MEMORIES
FROM WHEN I WAS YOUNG R.I.P LAURA
QUE DIOS TE CUIDE SIEMPRE,IMAGINO QUE EL CIELO TE RECIBIÓ CON LOS BRAZOS ABIERTOS. TU HERMOSA SONRISA, TU BELLA VOZ, TU SENCILLEZ Y HUMILDAD HOY SON PARA MI UN RECUERDO Y FUERZA EN MOMENTOS COMPLICADOS.
TE RECORDARÉ POR SIEMPRE
SIEMPRE TU CANCION “GLORIA” ME PUSO A BAILAR. ERA MUY CHICO PERO ESA CANCION ME CAUSA ALEGRIA. POR ESO ESTOY SEGURO QUE EL CIELO TIENES UN LUGAR ESPECIAL. DESCANSA EN PAZ, LAURA.
Wow, went to youtube to have my son listen to one of my favorite Laura songs, and read that you had died in Aug of 04. **RIP**, will miss you.
Even though I did not know you personally, it made me teary eye, to know that you will not be around. Loved your songs.
Laura, it’s been 3 and a half yrs. now since we lost you. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you. I continue to play your Music always! My heart was truly broken when I heard of your passing. I think you were a phenominal Female Vocalist that will Never be forgotten. I hope the New Generations find out who you were and play your Music through Generations to come! The Power, the Passion…and you were truly a gentle, kind, loving Soul. The day i got to meet you was one of the happiest days of my life. You are with me always! I love you always, Mitch Duguay
we will not find such voice again ever. she was no matchless
my husband and i were listening to 80’s music on the computer and i thought of laura and we were so exited to hear her songs..however we werent aware that she had passed…i’m so sorry and it’s very sad and surprising…i used to wait for solid gold to come on on sundays and she was one of my favorites!
my deepest sympothy
Sad, very sad. She toured South Africa in 1989 where i was fortunate to see her live. Forever Laura.
Well, Laura we are now entering another year and closer to your anniversary . Well almost. But the point is, i still miss you very much and continue to hold your artistic qualities close to my heart and ears. I downloaded your songs onto my ipod and carry you with me many places and your always a song away. Goodbye my friend. Through the tears, i can see again.
when i was 9 years old, i was an avid fans of my idol laura branigan. i always admired her angelic voice when she sangs POWER OF LOVE and SPANISH EDDIE. These songs are always in my heart and inspired me so much during my school days and so my professional time. this year 2008 of May, i was surprised and shocked that she was passed away already. rest in peace idol. i love you so much.
Hello, I’m franch and I love very much Laura and all she have sing; each time I hear some sing. But I would like to have lyrics of “I can see again”. Is there somebody here who have the possibility to send me back that ? I will be very happy to have that… Thanks
I played in a touring rock band in the 80’s. I performed alot of her music expecially Gloria. I spent many many miles listening to her tapes while touring with the bank. I was shocked to find out about her death 4 years later. I still listen to those tapes. You are so missed by alot of people. Good bye!
The Greatest. There will NEVER be another…
Hello, I just watched her video and was very sad that she’s gone… at the same time.. I know she’s in heaven and happy no more pain and sufferings…Laura was a great artist, singer. she will be forever in our hearts including all her beautiful songs and angelic her voice. Thank you for making all your beautiful songs…

I was shocked when Laura passed away and I miss her deeply! I always wanted to see her in concert and to meet her. And now, I’ll never get the chance. I will always be a big fan of yours, Laura and you are truly missed! I’m also bummed that you didn’t get to finish producing your, Remember Me CD. But, now you’re singing with the angels! And I hope and pray that God will introduce us in Heaven.
i know laura due to her famous song self control and i was unware when did she die this kind of pretty singer with excellent voice peoples never forget but we can do its all depend on time when god decide about our death and live we can just pray for their souls of poeples like laura , jimbrown. The song self control is still run in disco every where in the world and it will be run and when ever peoples will listen this song they will msut remember pretty laura.
Dearest Laura- TI AMO!
the first time i heard laura branigan was in a video game track in self control since i heard that song i was obsessed with it an then i heard that she died an i actually cried because she was an amazingly kind and caring person may her spirit soar
i just can not belive that she is gone i was shocked to hear that she is not here she will be missed.
Laura joins a list of singers who left us way too early. She will be missedthe same as the likes of Karen Carpenter, Jim Croce, Harry Chapin
Today i had that ( go back time ) fever , and of course played Self Control in my IPod .I can’t believe Laura is gone … can you ? It seems she is just here w/ us !!! Once again the silent killer ( brain aneurism ) like my sister , Vania … she was 39 and like me , love Self Control . So today in this go back time fever , i will play once again , this song to hear Laura’s voice and my sister laugh….
such a beautiful lady, heart and soul. I just found out about this last week. My heart saddens. May you find that special resting place my dear angel. Love you always. spirit be free! Melissa
My mother, my father and i do love the singer laura branigan.
We were shocked by her passing away. We consider her as one of the singers who have beautiful, golden voices.
But even until now, we still listen to her tracks. These are very phenomenal.
i was 12 years old when i first heard of lauras songs compilation that my sister recieved as a gift from her admirer. that was 1986. the power of love moved me to look for more of her songs and that was my very first time to buy a cassete tape of miss branigan. 23 years of lauras music moved my life as if there were no other singer i can hear. until she died.. i still cry to this very day. she became my very console and comfort to my sad moments. i know 95% of her songs and always singing it. how powerful her songs she made me brave to live life. …i wish we could be alone… over you… thank you my laura… so when my wife gave birth to our daughter in january 5 2005, i named her laura. a few months mis branigan sleeps and hope to meet her in god”s paradise…
I really miss Laura. Sadly I never saw her in concert.
Laura Branigan was the best loved everything she did the woman had soul and depth to her singing she will be missed dearly ,I once had the pleasure of seeing her concert at The Casino in Hampton ,N.H. she was so alive with her performance she glowed you could tell she enjoyed what she did as much as we enjoyed her.My heart goes out to her family and friends . She was loved but all.
I only discovered Laura’s music after her passing. What a very sad loss to the world.
My hearts goes out to all the family, friends and fans that Laura has left behind.
Love you always forever Laura.
I always loved the song “Gloria”. Just a great song, by a fantastic singer, with great music. I heard it in on the radio today and thought about how shocked I was when I heard of Laura’s passing back in ’04.A really classy lady! Time does fly.
Miss you Laura.
Her death is like the passing of a dove,the earth may retake the flesh but the song will never be forgotten. Thanks Laura
I miss you, I just found out tonight, just this moment, I didnt know about it… Im so sorry I will always LOVE You.. and Mexico will always MISS YOU……You are the greatest POP singer… May your soul found peace….
Laura was a very beautiful and talented singer, her death was tragic in claiming someone so young,she is sorely missed, RIP.
back in 1984 I grow up always lisening to her music on cassette tape when i was 15 yr old from Arviat nunavut the song was self-control.I’m going to miss her voice rip Laura
One thing that I find most interesting is:
With all of the comments made by some of these people over Laura Branigan’s death, by any chance,
do you ever wonder if these people still feel the same about her? I never knew too much about her. All I remember is that I hated all of what I call the 80ties pop music=NOISE. It just never made sense to me. I wondered about the Creatures of the Night video. For some reason, I always associate dthis song with ELVIRA~Mistress of the Dark
I sometimes listen to her albums and wonder what might have been, I know what she had become – a star, no more and no less. An artist to remember for her selfless giving to her family and to her audience.
Every time I think of Laura being gone, I am overcome by a great sadness. Too soon! We will always love and miss you.
im very sorry to here she died she had an amazing voice im a dj and play her song often and will continue to do so to keep her voice and memory alive i will truely miss her
my favourite singer , i loved her songs ” the lucky one ” is my favourite from the movie ”an uncommon love ”. she was a loverly person , great strong voice , and very pretty . sadly missed by all greg browne ….australia.
was utubing and seen a memorial tribute to Laura was not aware that she had passed on,very sad news but glad she is with her husband again,they say everything happens for a reason,i can honestly say being an 80’s fan laura was and still is one of the only singers that could put chills down my spine she is an awesome singer and a great lady,listening to her music now has even more meaning than ever.god bless,you are one of the best ever thank you laura
You are truly missed. But, now you’re singing and dancing with the angels and you’re no longer suffering. May you rest in peace and may God introduce us in heaven. I will always remember you and miss you.
Love & Always,
i remember you

I really fancied you in the mysterious video of “Self Control” and loved the song even though people round me didnt quite know why. Now I am a musician and your words and voice ring on in my mind…
“Oh the night is my world….”
I just found out, yesterday about Laura’s passing while I was checking her website to see what she was upto lately and I was very shocked and saddened by the news.
Laura had great talent and a unique voice. She will be missed.
Rest in peace, Laura.
When one watches Laura’s performance of, ‘How Am I Supposed To Live Without You,’ one can see the TEARS OF SORROW AND SADNESS streaming down her face!!… tears over the loss of her husband to colon cancer. It is the most wrenchingly emotional performance I have ever seen!! Every time I watch this video, I am reduced to tears myself!! I cry over the loss of a truly gifted Angel of God!! You are sorely missed, Laura Branigan… GONE TOO SOON!!! Why is that always so?? God raised her up to him, because he was PLEASED with what he saw!! MAY YOU BE WITH HIM, ALWAYS, AND ALWAYS FEEL HIS LOVE! I LOVE YOU, LAURA BRANIGAN!! XO, XO 🙁 Michael Bubblo, email@example.com
This is my second post. I erroneously stated previously that the following video of Laura singing, ‘How Am I Supposed To Live Without You’ and it’s painful rendition was the emotion she felt at the passing of her husband from colon cancer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VniG9mztdEA
I WAS WRONG!!!! This performance was BEFORE her husband’s death, WHICH MAKES IT ALL THE MORE REMARKABLE!!!! I STILL CRY when I see this video. I ALWAYS WILL, and I will always love this God-Given GIft. She is truly a DOVE! Laura, I HAVE NO DOUBT I WILL SEE YOU IN HEAVEN!!!!
I listen to your music and think you are the best
in music, forever. What a loss to this world. I wish I could meet with you, where you are and talk. One day will we meet? I hope you are happy and in Heaven. Thank you for leaving your voice with us!
