Just had we had such a wonderful neo soul show last Thursday, on Saturday comes the sad news that Charles Bradley died this Saturday.

Charles was one of the great neo soul artists. He had been performing for most of his life, but did not become well know until he was well into his sixties. He had a remarkable life, going from homelessness lows, to singing career highs. I highly recommend watching the documentary “Soul of America” which documents Charles life from his childhood in Florida, to his life on the streets and then later his career as Screaming Eagle of Soul”

What the documentary highlights, is what a truly wonderful and warm person Charles was.
