American soul singer Charles Bradley dies aged 68

Charles Bradley Dies After Cancer Battle (1948-2017)

A year after a stomach cancer diagnosis, doctors informed Bradley that his cancer had spread to his liver, though it had not returned to his stomach.

Bradley had cancelled a fall leg of touring earlier this month after it was revealed that his cancer had returned.

Born in Gainesville, Fla., Bradley grew up in Brooklyn but left home at the age of 14.

Like his labelmate Sharon Jones who also passed away previous year from cancer, Bradley found late life success, after signing to Daptone Records and releasing his debut album No Time for Dreaming in 2011 at the age of 62.

The singer's remarkable life story and extraordinary journey was captured in the documentary Charles Bradley: Soul of America, directed by Poull Brien in 2012. His latest album, "Changes", figured on several music magazines lists of 2016 s top albums. He even spent time as a James Brown impersonator. Bradley also had a special bond with his audiences.

Soul singer Charles Bradley has died at age 68. As he told us in an interview past year: "When you look at the expressions on the people's faces, and you can see some of your own life in their faces and the changes that some people are going through".

"Charles was somehow one of the meekest and strongest people I've ever known". "It took 62 years for somebody to find me, but I thank God". According to a statement, Bradley passed in Brooklyn "surrounded by family and friends including members of the bands he worked closely with: Menahan Street Band, His Extraordinaires, Budos Band and the Jimmy Hill Allstarz-his band from his time performing as Black Velvet".

In lieu of flowers, his representative is asking that donations may be made to the following organizations: All-Stars Project or Music Unites.

Bradley was an electrifying stage presence and had lived many lives before becoming an internationally successful soul singer late in life. Following that are other videos by him.
