Legendary soul singer Charles Bradley, the “Screaming Eagle of Soul”, whose career took off in the 2000s after years spent on the edges of the music industry (including time spent as a James Brown impersonator), has died at age 68 of cancer.
Bradley was diagnosed with stomach cancer in 2016 and though he headed out on tour earlier this year, the cancer recently returned and spread to his liver, according to a press release announcing the singer’s death.
From his twitter page: “It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Charles Bradley. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”
R.I.P good sir xo
