On September 23, soul singer known as the “Screaming Eagle of Soul” Charles Bradley died at the age of 68. The news was posted on the home page of his website. Bradley had battled stomach cancer and beat it, but he was forced to cancel tour dates earlier this year due to the return of his cancer, this time spreading to his liver.
Bradley did not receive fame until later in life, but his music touched many. Though he lived throughout the country over the years, New York City had been his home for the past two decades. He passed away in Brooklyn, New York, surrounded by family, friends, and fellow musicians.
The statement on his website reads as follows:
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the following organizations:

– Music Unites: http://www.musicunites.org
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.
