Blues artist and entertainer Shonka Dukureh was found dead in a Nashville loft on Thursday, the Metro Nashville Police Department said.

Police said Dukureh, 44, was found in the room of the condo given to her two children. Shonka Dukureh recently played her character as Big Mama Thornton in the movie "Elvis".

According to police, one of Dukureh's children thought she was passive and went to a neighbor's house for help. Police said people living next to his house called 911 at 9:27 am.

The police said that they do not smell the rat in his passing. A representative of MNPD said that the clinical inspectors are currently trying to ascertain the cause of death.

Dukureh shines in breakout Big Mama Thornton execution

A Charlotte, North Carolina local and Nashville resident - moved on from Fisk University with a four-year certification in a theater. He also received a bachelor's degree in training from Trevecca Nazarene University.

The performing craftsman scored his most memorable pivotal film role as Big Mama Thornton, a venture he left no stone unturned.

"[Big Mama Thornton] was really raw with what she did and was extremely fair and honest and [made] the music she felt like. What's more, I could totally connect with her," said Major Dukureh.

"I was extraordinarily careful and needed to be really deliberate about making sure I understood and understood about him, about his legacy, about his soul, whatever he brought to the music. That I was willing to do it, was offering praise to him. It did and set that groundwork."

Initially eager to chase after training, the teacher-turned-Hollywood star was set to deliver her most memorable studio collection this late spring, according to her site.

Dukureh said, "This venture is a recognition for blues music in celebration of the wildly unrecognized pioneering craftspeople and artists who created the wild musical transformation."

Nashville frontrunner, 'Elvis' co-stars react to shocking Denise Nashville City Hall leader John Cooper shared his sympathies with Dukureh's family in a tweet.

"Her strong voice and creativity will live on through her music, and we honor her memory on this sad day," wrote Cooper.
