Andrea True, pop singer of the famous disco hit “More, More, More,” has died Nov. 7 at a hospital in Kingston, NY. She died aged 68.
The Gilpatric-VanVliet funeral home in Kingston announced her death but did not specify the cause of death.
Her real name was “Andrea Marie Truden,” and she was born July 26, 1943, in Nashville; later moving to New York in 1968 to become an actress.
However, her life didn’t go as planned and she felt compelled to join the porn industry in the 1970’s. At the same time she changed her name to “True” so as not to cause her family embarrassment.
In one interview she said: “How do you go home and say, 'Mom, I'm in porno movies'?”
However, she reformed her life in 1975 when she began her music career. She filmed a commercial in Jamaica but was prohibited from leaving the country with her earnings.
She explained how she then stayed there to spend her money to finish her recording of "More, More, More," an instrument-heavy track.
Rolling Stone magazine has described the song as “one of the iconic songs of the disco era.”
True also had hits with singles: "What's Your Name, What's Your Number?," "Party Line" and "N.Y. You Got Me Dancing."
"I would be a waitress or a typist before I'd star in another" adult film, True told The Times in 1976.
"Now I just want to record and perform. Don't look at me as a porno star anymore," she said. "Look at me as a recording star."
