Bobby Womack

Singer/Songwriter (March 4, 1944-June 27, 2014) On June 27, 2014, the world lost one of its most distinguished singers and songwriters with the passing of Bobby Womack. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Womack's career spanned nearly six decades in which he wrote and recorded with Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, Chaka Khan and Sly Stone, among many others. He was also accomplished on the right-hand guitar, although he was left-handed and would play it upside down. In 2009 Womack, whose gritty baritone was as distinctive as his soulful ballads, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He will be remembered for songs including “Across 110th Street,” “That's the Way I Feel About Cha” and “If You Think You’re Lonely Now.”  (Photo: Matt Sayles/Invision/AP, file)
