The soprano Jody DeVos, who was one of the best opera singers in the world, has died at the age of 35. As reported by the world media, the cause of death was breast cancer.

Ten years ago, she won second place in the competition for Britain's Queen Elizabeth II. This led her to roles at the Opéra Comique in Paris and other companies throughout France and Belgium. She sang "Queen of the Night" in Bastille, Zerbine in Montpellier and many other operas.

A critic of "The Times" once wrote of her: "There is no high note she cannot reach."

"It is with great sadness and emotion that we announce the news of the death of Jodi DeVos. For the past few months, she has been fighting cancer bravely. She returned to the stage on April 30 with great determination, but her health deteriorated a few days ago. This news, so unrealistic and unfair, was a great shock to all of us. Jodi was only 35 years old and at the top of her craft. We know how much she was loved by her colleagues, the entire music community and, of course, the public," said a statement released on her death.
