Reddy died on Tuesday in Los Angeles, her family said in a statement on Facebook.
Her children, Traci Donat and Jordan Sommers, described her as a wonderful mother, grandmother, and a truly formidable woman.
Our hearts are broken. But we take comfort in the knowledge that her voice will live on forever.

Had a very nice voice. RIP.
Oh, she had a beautiful voice, and my mom and I used to love “You and Me Against the World.” I still cry when I hear it.
With all due respect I couldn’t stand that song.
I’m getting old.
I remember her winning a Grammy Award and upon receiving it, said: “I want to thank God because SHE makes everything possible”
We had an album of hers — back when “record jackets” were popular. It was like a mini-photo album of her family. And I remember “Delta Dawn” on the AM radio station when I was getting up for school.
RIP, Helen Reddy. I doubt we’d see eye-to-eye on much these days, but thanks for being a good memory of my childhood.
Beautiful voice. Rest in Peace.

So, she believed there are two genders?
I liked her voice. May she RIP. She and RBG are probably having coffee in the Afterlife Cafeteria right now. I’d love to be a fly on the wall. But then, there are no flies there.
Yes, remember that and her appearing without a bra with nothing to show for it. Not a fan, but RIP.
Oh, great song. “Tell me again, mommy!”

“...and my mom and I used to love ‘You and Me Against the World.’ I still cry when I hear it.”
And when one of us is gone,
And one of us is left to carry on,
Then remembering will have to do,
Our memories alone will get us through
Think about the days of me and you,
Of you and me against the world.
Paul Williams wrote SO many good songs! Totally under-rated!
I had no idea she was Australian. RIP.
And he was great as Little Enos.
Sad. Love Helen Reddy.
“Airplane!” had so much fun with that.
