Kt Tunstall - Kt Tunstall Opens Up About Father's Death

Scottish singer Kt Tunstall has opened up about her devastation following the death of her father last year (12), revealing he was suffering from Parkinson's disease before he was killed in a cycling accident.

The Suddenly I See hitmaker lost her dad, 73-year-old university lecturer David Tunstall, last summer (Aug13), and admits she went through into a "tsunami of emotions" in the aftermath of the tragedy.

Tunstall reveals her dad was in failing health at the time of his death, but he was determined to remain as fit and active as he possibly could.

She tells Britain's Daily Mail, "Losing Dad made me examine my own life, and my priorities have changed. He had Parkinson's disease, so he wasn't well. But he died as a result of a cycling accident. It was very sad, as he was always an impressive man physically. He ran marathons and hated getting old. But he had lived a good life. He didn't want to stick around in a bad shape."
