Disco Star Andrea True Dead at 68

Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images(KINGSTON, N.Y.) -- Andrea Marie Truden, lead singer of the '70s disco act Andrea True Connection, died Nov. 7 in Kingston, N.Y., reports the Daily Freeman. She was 68. A cause of death was not released.  

Truden started her career as an adult film actress, appearing in some 60 hardcore porn films as Andrea True, but caught the disco wave with the 1976 smash hit "More More More," which reached #4 on the Billboard chart.

True returned to porn for a short time after she was unable to match the success of "More More More" -- her follow-up singles "What's Your Name What's Your Number" and "N.Y. You Got Me Dancing" were nowhere near as popular.  She later retreated from the spotlight completely.  

In 1999, the alt-rock group Len sampled "More More More" in their hit "Steal My Sunshine," briefly reviving interest in the singer.  The song is also currently being used in a TV ad for the cereal Honey Bunches of Oats.
