Ronnie Spector: celebrities react to the death of the icon of the 60s

Ronnie Spector is known to be one of the formative voices of modern pop, so it’s no wonder his death at age 78 on Wednesday sent shockwaves through the showbiz industry.

Some of Spector’s greatest hits like “Be My Baby” are still widely known and recognized for their impact on musical history.

The star died on Wednesday after a brief battle with cancer, her family said.

“Ronnie lived her life with a sparkle in her eyes, a brave demeanor, a wicked sense of humor and a smile on her face. She was filled with love and gratitude,” read a statement from the family.
