  • Remember "It's Raining Men"?

    'It's Raining Men' singer dead

    SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- Izora Rhodes Armstead, who sang the 1980's dance club hit "It's Raining Men" as one half of the Weather Girls, has died. Her age was unknown.

    Armstead, who along with partner Martha Wash started out as background singers for San Francisco disco diva Sylvester before forming the Weather Girls, died on September 16 of heart failure at a hospital in San Leandro, about 20 miles east of San Francisco.

    Armstead and Wash, who met when they sang in the same gospel group, were known as Two Tons O' Fun when they sang on four Sylvester Albums, including his No. 1 club hits, "Dance (Disco Heat)" and "(You Make Me Feel) Mighty Real."

    After leaving Sylvester, they made three albums as the Weather Girls before splitting up. One of the albums, "Success," featured the 1983 song "It's Raining Men" -- co-written by "Late Show" bandleader Paul Shaffer -- which was a No. 1 dance club hit.

    Talk about someone having literally 15 minutes of fame ! I am sure that many discos will have a moment of silence over this.

      I sing that song from time to time to be annoying. People tend to give you weird looks when a guy is saying, "Its raining men" at the top of your lungs...
