Christina Joy "Chrissy" Amphlett (25 October 1959 – 21 April 2013) was an Australian singer, who was the lead singer of the rock band Divinyls.
Many fans are paying tribute to our Australian dynamic singer.
Here are some info about Chrissy Amphlett :
A statement from Chrissy's cousin, Patricia "Little Pattie" Thompson, is provided below:
“Our beloved Chrissy peacefully made her transition this morning.
“Christine Joy Amphlett succumbed to the effects of breast cancer and multiple sclerosis, diseases she vigorously fought with exceptional bravery and dignity.
“She passed gently, in her sleep, surrounded by close friends and family, including husband of fourteen years, musician Charley Drayton, her sister, Leigh, nephew, Matt, and cousin Patricia Thompson (“Little Pattie”).
"Chrissy’s light burns so very brightly.
“Hers was a life of passion and creativity; she always lived it to the fullest.
“With her force of character and vocal strength she paved the way for strong, sexy, outspoken women.
“Best remembered as the lead singer of the ARIA Hall of Fame inductee, Divinyls, last month she was named one of Australia’s top ten singers of all time.
“Chrissy expressed hope that her worldwide hit “I Touch Myself” would remind women to perform annual breast examinations.
“Chrissy was a true pioneer and a treasure to all whose lives her music and spirit touched.”
