R.I.P. Disco singing sensation Bruni Pagan

(April 14, 2020) 2020 continues to bring too many sad deaths of talented artists. Today we say a sad goodbye to Bruni Pagan, the talented and beautiful singer who graced many recordings during the late 1970s and early 80s. Born on the Lower East Side of New York in a large Puerto Rican family, Pagan became a much sought after backing vocalist for many of the East coast disco producers.

Pagan worked with producer and flutist Herbie Mann, as well as Patrick Adams and Leroy Burgess.

In 1979, Pagan moved to the front of the stage and released the album Just Bruni on Elektra Records in 1979. It included the dance hit “Fantasy.” The album was re-released on the Rhino label and is available today. It was her final major release, but continues to attract listeners more than four decades after its release. She will be missed.
