Music loses another legendary soul, and the world mourns. R&B soul stations play this man’s music at least three times a day, but hearing it now will be bittersweet.
R&B Singer/songwriter Bobby Womack died earlier today at the age of 70. Womack was such a strong man for being able to overcome his twenty year cocaine addiction according to USA Today and being able to deal with the diagnostic of Alzheimer’s disease and prostate cancer. Did you know he was discovered by Sam Cooke? I could only imagine the amount of music and knowledge he got from that experience! We do not appreciate our legends until their gone but we will learn one day.
Bobby Womack’s music has created memorable moments in many lives and fans across the globe appreciate all what he has done for music. His SOUL will live on.
