Flack is famous for her soulful renditions of songs such as "Let's Stay Together," "Prelude to a Kiss," "Isn't It Romantic," "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'," and "My Romance."
Her signature song is her 1973 smash hit "Killing Me Softly with His Song."

Flack, who got her start with Atlantic Records after being discovered by jazz great Les McCann, celebrated 25 years with Atlantic by releasing her 14th album, ROBERTA, in 1994.
