    Thanks for posting, Tulessa -- but very sad news. I have just heard and was coming here to post it myself.

    Walden remembers soul legend Sledge as ‘one special guy’

    ...Sledge, 74, probably best known for his classic “When a Man Loves a Woman,” died Tuesday in Louisiana from natural causes while in hospice care. ...

    A bit more than a year ago, he did an outdoor concert in a small venue in Macon. (For those who followed the Lauren Giddings case, it was in Washington Park, where "Lauren's bench" is located.) I didn't get to go, but my daughter and one of my nieces did. I'm really glad they got to hear him. I would have loved to! See my third link above for some brief clips from that concert and some interesting back story.

    Rest in peace, Percy.

    Rest in peace, Percy. You did GOOD.
    Peace is flowing like a river,
    Flowing out through you and me,
    Spreading out into the desert,
    Setting all the captives free.
