On Saturday (Sept. 23), legendary soul singer, Charles Bradley, passed away from cancer. He was 68. Bradley's exuberant personality garnered comparisons to the late James Brown. 

In September, Bradley was forced to curtail his tour because his second battle with cancer was too much to overcome. During his recent shows, a spokesperson for Bradley said that the singer felt worn-down during his performances. Still, Bradley did his best to overcome his hindrances and put on a show for his devoted fans.
