Soul singing icon, Bill Withers has passed away at the age of 81 due to heart complications.
The Grammy Award winning artist is responsible for a slew of hit records such as ‘Lean On Me,’ ‘Lovely Day,’ and ‘Ain’t No Sunshine.’
His family left the public with a statement that reads:
“We are devastated by the loss of our beloved, devoted husband and father. A solitary man with a heart driven to connect to the world at large, with his poetry and music, he spoke honestly to people and connected them to each other. As private a life as he lived close to intimate family and friends, his music forever belongs to the world. In this difficult time, we pray his music offers comfort and entertainment as fans hold tight to loved ones.”
Rest In Peace Bill Withers
