Barbara Weldens, an up-and-coming artist from France, died suddenly this week while performing on stage at a church in the village of Goudron. Barbara was only 35 years old.
According to The BBC, Weldens may have been electrocuted as a result of thunderstorms in the area effecting pieces of her equipment. She is said to have suffered a cardiac arrest and medics called to the scene were unable to revive her.Tragically, the singer had released her debut album, “Le Grand H de l’Homme,” just last year.
Based on her official website biography, Weldens grew up in the circus, where she learned juggling, acrobatics, and trapeze. She later fell in love with music, learning how to play the piano and to write songs.
We send them our heartfelt condolences, along with the loved ones of all the stars we have lost already this year. May the 35-year old rest in peace.
