Soul singer Percy Sledge died on 14 April 2015.  He was inducted into the Alabama Music Hall of Fame and penned and sang one of my favorite songs. 

I know that many of you didn’t know that he died, so in memory of Percy Sledge, I will provide a few Sledge Facts.   He was born in Leighton, Alabama on 25 November 1940 and died in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at the age of 74.

He topped the charts back in 1966, with a little tune called, “When a man loves a woman.”  He enjoyed a number   Billboard slot and Number 1 R&B charting selling a million records long before that was a common feat.
