Edna Perry, 80, passed away in a hospital in Jackson, Mississippi on Sunday (30Oct16).

Perry and her husband Wesley adopted Faith when she was a baby.

Paying tribute to her adopted parents in a 2006 interview, the This Kiss singer called her childhood "pretty amazing", adding, "My mom and my dad and my brothers, they are amazing, very stable, good Christian.

"I was placed into an incredible home that... is responsible for the way I am today and the backbone that I have in order to do this for a living, which is a crazy, sometimes unstable world that this projects. But the most important thing to me is about my family and that was definitely taught from my mom and dad."

The death comes a month after Hill and her husband Tim MCGraw celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary.
