Charles Bradley, known as the "Screaming Eagle of Soul," died on Saturday, September 23, 2017 in Brooklyn, New York, from a stomach cancer. He was 68 years old.
With a powerful and fiery, often pained, performance and a raspy, funky, and energetic style, that evoked James Brown, one of his musical heroes, he took long to blossom. When he did achieve success, that came with his 2011 debut album, “No Time for Dreaming,” he became unstoppable. His first album was soon followed with “Victim of Love” in 2013, and a third, “Changes,” in 2016.
