American soul singer Robbie Montgomery has lived a glowing life and enjoyed success as a singer and in the later parts of her life, a restaurateur.

She first gained public recognition when she became one of the original “Ikettes” in the “Ike & Tina Turner” Revue that held sway in the 60s. After she ended her tenure on the revue, she went on to become a “Night Tripper” for Dr. John.

There, she performed as a backing vocalist for famous musical stars like Stevie Wonder, Barbra Streisand, and the “The Rolling Stones,” to name a few.

Apart from being a successful restaurant owner, she also starred in "Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s," an award-winning series for which she is also fondly recognized by her fans.

The singer is one year shy of becoming an octogenarian, and it can be said that age has completely changed her looks, with Montgomery now looking so different.

This fact is observed in her recent posts on Instagram that show that Montgomery, though still maintaining her unerring beauty has changed so much.

In one of the posts, the 79-year-old is in the cockpit of an airplane with a pilot and a friend, and in the caption, she joked that she flew the plane to Houston and made it, asking her fans if they wanted to ride.

Tragedy struck in Montgomery’s household when she lost her grandson, Andre Montgomery, in 2016. Andre was 21 years old and was shot and killed in a St. Louis shooting.

Andre was found lying unconscious in a house, with gunshot wounds on his body, and was pronounced dead on the scene. Speaking to TMZ after news of her grandson’s death broke out, Montgomery said that he was set up.

She revealed that Andre was recording a song in the house where he was shot, when he received a call to come outside, after which he got shot. She also spoke about his death in an episode of "Sweetie Pie’s."

Amid tears, Montgomery said that Andre’s passing was heartbreaking because he was someone she wanted to take under her wing and ensure that he made it through Highschool, a dream that was cut short by his murder.
