The Rochester, N.Y. native continued to find success with singles, “Love Makes a Woman” and “Looking for a Love.” Sims even released an album in 2014 titled Love Song, which features a duet with reggae artist Maxi Priest. This past summer, she toured the United Kingdom and planned to release a new album this year.
Sims is survived by her husband, Errol, and their two children. BROADCAST HIPHOP NETWORKSsends our deepest condolences to her family and friends at this time.
