(Solomon Burke and Jools Holland "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love")
Legendary R&B American Soulman Solomon Burke passed away this morning due to natural causes after arriving at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, the Netherlands for a sold out show at Paradiso with Dutch band, De Dijk. From his website:
This is a difficult time in the world, and I would like to ask each of you to find ways to be a part of positive solutions. There is something that each of us can do, and it's just a matter of searching your own soul to find the way that you can give to others. Some of us can give of our time and talent, and some of us can donate money or items. The trick is to give without looking to receive - to give of yourself to your family, your friends, your community, and the world community with love.
Special prayers and sympathy go out to the families of the miners in Virginia. May God bless you and give you strength in this special time.
I thank you... please continue to pray with me for peace.
R.I.P. Solomon Burke.
