You may not have know him personally, but his classic hits like “Lean On Me, “Lovely Day,” “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Just the Two of Us,” and “Grandma’s Hands” have spanned generations and are still played heavy in rotation today. It is with sadness the world learned that the legendary soul artist Bill Withers passed away at the age 81. According to reports he died on March 30th due to heart complications. His death was confirmed by his family on the singer’s webpage (billwithers.com/news/bill-withers-music-belongs-forever-to-the-world/ noting the following:

We are devastated by the loss of our beloved, devoted husband and father. A solitary man with a heart driven to connect to the world at large, with his poetry and music, he spoke honestly to people and connected them to each other. As private a life as he lived close to intimate family and friends, his music forever belongs to the world. In this difficult time, we pray his music offers comfort and entertainment as fans hold tight to loved ones. We know his legacy will live in our hearts and in yours for generations to come.

We will miss his sharp wit, playful sense of humor, and no-nonsense way of turning a phrase as no one else could. He was a deeply proud man, full of integrity and principle, and we as his family are immensely proud of him for sharing his musical and lyrical gifts so elegantly and generously with the world. A master of writing love songs, he loved music, cherished and protected his family, and our love for him is immeasurable. 

With Love,

The Withers Family

Erykah Badu to Charge Fans $1 to Live Stream a Concert at Her House

Dallas, TX — Singer-songwriter Erykah Badu has announced that she is planning to perform a concert through a live stream from her bedroom in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. The event will cost $1 each to fans who want to watch and have a chance to pick what songs she will perform.

“Peace and love. The show must go on,” Badu said in an Instagram video. “Introducing the quarantine concert series live from my bedroom. We will be performing here live this weekend.”

The Grammy Award-winning singer was originally set to do a concert tour in different states from February to November 2020 but was canceled due to the coronavirus.

As an alternative, Badu decided to live stream a concert from her bedroom in Dallas, Texas. The interactive Apocalypse One event will include a poll where attendees who paid their $1 admission could choose which songs she will perform.

Prior to Badu, some artists like John Legend and Chris Martin also did a live stream concert for their fans for free.

Last week, Badu also caught public attention when she received the Filmmakers & Soundtrack Award at Texas Film Awards wearing a hazmat suit with Louis Vuitton logo, which she called “social distancing couture” in her Instagram post.
