Do youever feel like you’ve been punched in the stomach after hearing some really terrible news? well that’s how I feel right now with the news that the world has lost one of it’s greatest and most loveable people, soul singe Mr. Charles Bradley.

Charles didn’t release his debut album till he was 62 years old, but since then “The Screaming Eagle of Soul,” has not let up, even when he was diagnosed with cancer he took a small break but came back spreading the love like he always did.

I was lucky enough to meet Charles, briefly after he played this past summer’s WayHome Music Festival. It was backstage, I wondered over, told him how great his set was, he said thank you and that he always loved meeting people who enjiyed his music. I then played fan boy and asked for a hug…I got this really hard, sweaty hug from the man himself…then I pushed it and asked for a photo…he was delighted, his last words to me were “God bless”……….god bless Charles, and keep on spreading the love.
