French singer Barbara Weldens dies on stage in apparent electrocution

20 July 2017

According to The Independent, Weldens was performing on stage at a church in the small south-west French village of Goudron when she suffered cardiac arrest.

Police have opened an investigation to "search for the causes of the death" and it is believed they will be analysing the images from various videos taken on the night to assist with their inquiry.

The cause of her death is unclear but, according to one report, she was probably electrocuted. They also told the publication that they plan to determine if and why an electrical malfunction had occurred. Her set was part of the Léo Ferré festival, which has been cancelled in the wake of tragedy.

Her debut album, Le Grand H de L'Homme, was released previous year and met with critical praise and several awards for her songwriting and music.

A bio on Weldens' website suggests she grew up around circuses.
