Irene Cara, an Oscar-winning singer and actress who recorded the title tracks to the blockbuster 1980s movies “Fame” and “Flashdance,” has died at age 63, her publicist said on Saturday.


Cara was found deceased at her home in Florida on Friday, publicist Judith Moose said, adding that the cause of death was unknown at this point.


“She was a beautifully gifted soul whose legacy will live forever through her music and films,” Moose said earlier in a written statement.


Cara is well-known for singing the title track of the smash 1980s film “Fame,” with its indelible refrain “I’m gonna live forever, I’m gonna learn how to fly.”
