‘Girls Aloud’ Singer Sarah Harding, died at the age of 39 due to breast cancer. Singer’s mother has announced this sad incident. According to a news published in the BBC, Sara had told in August last year that she was suffering from this disease, which had spread to other parts of her body.
Singer’s mother Mary informed about the news on Instagram, describing her daughter as ‘a shining star’. Earlier this year, Harding revealed that doctors told her she wouldn’t be able to see next Christmas.
Sharing a black-and-white photo of Harding, her mother wrote, “It’s with deep heartbreak that today I’m sharing the news that my beautiful daughter Sarah has sadly passed away. Many of you will know of Sarah’s battle with cancer and that she fought so strongly from her diagnosis until her last day. She slipped away peacefully this morning.”
However, Sarah Harding gained popularity in 2002 with an ITV talent show ‘Popstar: The Rivals’. The purpose of this show was to find a girl band and boy band. Singer then managed to make it to the finals. From here her band ‘Girls Aloud’ came into existence, in which she was joined by Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle, Kimberly Walsh and Cheryl Cole.
The band had several UK hits, including ‘Sound of the Underground’, ‘The Promise’, ‘Love Machine’ and ‘Jump and Call the Shots’. It came together again in 2012. They announced their separation in 2013.
