Legendary singer Roberta Flack can no longer sing.


The 85-year-old has been diagnosed with ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Flack’s manager Suzanne Koga said in a release that the progressive disease has made it impossible to sing and not easy to speak but will not “silence this icon.”

The amyotrophic lateral sclerosis diagnosis comes just ahead of the premiere of “Roberta,” a feature-length documentary debuting this week at a film festival in New York City.

The singer plans to stay active in her musical and creative pursuits.
