Maria Mendiola dead: Yes Sir I Can Boogie singer dies at 69 as Baccara co-star speaks out

The hit track was given a fresh lease of life after hitting number three in one UK singles chart in mid-November 2020 when Scotland defeated Serbia in a Euro 2020 play-off, with footage of Considine and his team-mates dancing and singing along to the track going viral.

In May, Clyde Radio 1 DJ George Bowie collaborated with Baccara and DJ Sparkos for a new remix of Yes Sir, I Can Boogie. 

The Scottish DJ also was part of a successful world record attempt to perform the biggest combined sing-a-long of Yes Sir, I Can Boogie.

Writing on Twitter, he said: “Absolutely devastated to hear the news about Maria Mendiola. Only met her a year ago but in that time we got to number 2 in the charts and made it into The Guinness Book Of Records. 

“A true legend taken too soon. Thinking about her family and loved ones.”
