KINGSTON, Jamaica — Celebrated caterer and singer Suzanne Couch died this morning in Mexico, OBSERVER ONLINE has learnt. Couch was battling stage four breast cancer.

She recently performed at Hope In The Hills benefit concert at Strawberry Hill in St Andrew, where she and her band captivated the audience in a stirring performance, lasting almost two hours.

“This experience has been very emotional for me,” she told the Jamaica Observer at the concert on Sunday, June 10.

“I've been wanting to do this show for two years, we had some issues getting sponsorship. Even though there were challenges I knew that I had to keep pushing because I am sick. It's incurable and it's spreading; I'm in a lot of pain and I'm taking a lot of drugs right now. The next stage after this is treatment,” Couch said then.

The concert was staged in support of the Hope Institute of Jamaica.
