Rolling Stone called him “a major new force in soul music.” His collaborations with Roberta Flack scored high on the charts and won him a Grammy Award. Six years later, his body was found outside his hotel in New York City; his death ruled a suicide. Celebrate the life and music of a soul legend with host Tom Shaker. It starts at 7pm this Monday!
