Ronnie Spector, the leader of pop group The Ronettes and the powerful central voice of hits like "Be My Baby" and "Baby I love You," has died, her family announced in a statement on her website Wednesday.

@cnnbrk She’s been having on my mind for a reason.

@cnnbrk Holy crap. I woke up yesterday with that song in my head out of the blue.

@cnnbrk I absolutely adored her and her beautiful voice

@cnnbrk I like that song, "Be My Baby". God Bless her
