Singer-songwriter Phoebe Snow, best known for her 1974 song "Poetry Man," died this morning in Edison, N.J., of complications from a brain hemorrhage she suffered more than a year ago, reports FoxNews.com.

Snow was popular in the 1970s as a jazz and pop star with a distinctive voice and charismatic personality. She withdrew from the public in 1980 to care for her disabled child.

Sue Cameron, her manager, said of the star: "Phoebe was one of the brightest, funniest and most talented singer-songwriters of all time and, more importantly, a magnificent mother to her late brain-damaged daughter, Valerie, for 31 years. Phoebe felt that was her greatest accomplishment."
