Judith Durham, the lead singer of the legendary Australian band The Seekers, has died at the age of 79.

Bandmember Athol Guy released a statement on behalf of the band saying their lives had “changed forever losing our treasured lifelong friend and shining star.”

Her struggle was intense and heroic – never complaining of her destiny and fully accepting its conclusion. Her magnificent musical legacy Keith, Bruce and I are so blessed to share.”

Durham joined The Seekers in the 1960s alongside Athol Guy, Keith Potger and Bruce Woodley and released hits like I’ll Never Find Another You and The Carnival Is Over.

They were joint recipients of the Australian of the Year award in 1967, but split up the following year when Durham left to pursue a solo career.

Twenty-eight years later in 1995, they were inducted into the Hall of Fame.

In 2014 they were honoured as Officers of the Order of Australia.
