bobby-womack-dies-at-70Chances are, if you play one of the legendary soul singer, Bobby Womack’s records in a club today, many will dance, sing along and jam to the late, great musical talent.  That is only a small portion of the legacy that Cleveland-born soul singer left before he died Friday, June 27, 2014 at the age of 70. He was suffering from colon cancer and diabetes at the time of his death. He was 70 years old.

The cause of death was unknown.

Womack’s career took off in the early 1960’s with the Valentinos, after Sam Cooke added the group to his roster at SAR Records. After Cooke’s death, Womack married his widow.
