“It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Charles Bradley,” the singer’s rep said in a statement. “Always a fighter, Charles battled cancer with everything he had. He was diagnosed with stomach cancer in the fall of 2016 and underwent treatment. Bradley headed out on the road earlier this year after receiving a clean bill of health but the cancer recently returned, spreading to his liver.”
Bradley’s reps added, “Thank you for your prayers during this difficult time. Mr. Bradley was truly grateful for all the love he’s received from his fans and we hope his message of love is remembered and carried on.”
Hey guys, in memory of the amazing singer & songwriter Charles Bradley I wanted to do something special in respect of him. I sampled one of my favourite songs from him for the first time ever: “I Believe In Your Love”. Charles was a big inspiration to me when i was going to school and his work still blows me away to this day. If you haven’t heard of him, you need to.
Feel free to download and share this tune :) Much Love, and thank you all for the support.
In 2013 during SXSW I saw Charles spill out his heart & soul to a packed house at Austin City Limits. It was a night that will stick with me forever. Thank you for expressing all of your heartaches & pain through words & music. You’ve made a lasting impact. If you haven’t heard his music or seen the documentary on him “Soul of America”, you should check it out.
