Puff Johnson succumbs to a battle with cervical cancer

By Genevieve Kgafe | Jun 25, 2013 | COMMENTS [ 55 ]

For Puff Johnson, joy and tragedy have often been fellows. From releasing a hit album at the age of 21 to having to bury her fiancé, music producer Kip Collins in 2007, and at 36 was diagnosed with cervical cancer which she subsequently died from.

Puff Johnson (born Ewanya Johnson, December 10, 1972, Detroit, Michigan) is an American singer-songwriter. She emerged on the music scene with the singles Forever More and Over & Over which appeared on the soundtrack of the film The First Wives Club. The single was a hit in Europe and Australia reaching the Top 20 in both continents. She released her first and critically acclaimed album, Miracle, in 1996.

The album was produced by Randy Jackson of American Idol. She has also collaborated with Narada Michael Walden & Diane Warren the top Pop Record producers. She also worked with Tupac Shakur on his hit single, Me Against the World, which was featured on the Bad Boys movie soundtrack and his album of the same name. Before moving to South Africa in 2008, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer.

While living there she was responding to treatment. Two years after living in South Africa, the cancer returned with vengeance. When she was no longer responding to treatment, she regretfully had to leave South Africa, the place she called home for three years and to her family and friends in the states. Dealing with this illness, her spirits and beliefs were strong.

Puff Johnson's popular song: 'Please help me, I'm falling'
