Singer and songwriter Phoebe Snow died at age 60 on Tuesday.
The New York City-born folk guitarist, who also made forays into jazz and blues, had her biggest hit in 1975 with the song "Poetry Man."
Shortly after that, her daughter was born with severe brain damage, and Snow largely dropped from the music scene to care for her.
Snow would go on be a successful jingle writer and also sang the theme for the sitcom "A Different World."
A long-time friend and public relations representative said Snow died of complications from a brain hemorrhage she suffered in January 2010.
