Eddie Levert: How He Made It Through
Legendary soul singer and O’Jay’s singer, Eddie Levert has had the types of career ups that anybody in the music business would love to have: He’s a Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductee, he has a BET Lifetime Achievement Award, and of course his O’Jays’ hit song “For the Love of Money” is beloved all across the world, even as a soundtrack for Donald Trump’s reality show, “The Apprentice”.
But as many of know, with any up, there are downs. And with Eddie, his downs almost took him out. He’ll be the first to tell you that last few years have been rough. He’s had to bury two sons—singer Gerald Levert died in 2006 from a heart attack and his son, Sean— who also performed in the group Levert, died in 2008 from complications of sarcoidosis.
