Charles Bradley Dies After Cancer Battle (1948-2017)

Rest in peace, Charles Bradley.

Bradley was diagnosed with stomach cancer previous year and beat the cancer, but it came back recently and spread to his liver.

Like his late label mate Sharon Jones - who died a year ago after a protracted battle with cancer - Florida-born, Brooklyn-reared Bradley was an old-school journeyman R&B performer who was launched to fame via a series of independent releases on Brooklyn's Daptone Records. When he was 8, his family moved to Brooklyn, New York. He released his debut solo album in 2011 at the age of 62, No Time for Dreaming, and was a steady face across the music festival scene over the years.

Upon moving back to Brooklyn in 1996, Bradley began moonlighting as a James Brown impersonator under the name Black Velvet.

The singer's remarkable life story and extraordinary journey was captured in the documentary Charles Bradley: Soul of America, directed by Poull Brien in 2012. His sophomore project Victim of Love came in 2013 and his third LP Changes in 2016.

But I know that from doing shows for the public, the love when I go out into the audience and hug 'em and the things that they say to me personally ...

After a battle with cancer, soul great Charles Bradley has sadly passed away. I think that he touched the right people's heart that believed in me and gave me a chance to come out.

Earlier in September, when announcing the tour's cancellation, a message attributed to Bradley on his social media accounts said: "I love all of you out there that made my dreams come true". The black & white clip mixes footage of Bradley in and around his Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn home with shots of him performing. Music is how I share my love with the world, and the love that my fans have given back brings me so much joy.
