The Death Of Al Jarreau A Legend

The Death Of Al Jarreau A Legend

Here we are again, another legend has passed away. In 2016 we had many public figures leave us, and with a bit of a rest at the beginning of 2017, we are yet again confronting the inevitable passing of another icon  Al Jarreau. 

Al Jarreau’s musical career began in 1965 with his first jazz album release. He went on to break the multi-Genre record for being the first recording artist to receive a grammy in 3 different categories (Jazz, R&B, and pop).

Al Jarreau was also an accomplished actor on the stage and big screen.  His light was always shining for all to see and love. Hospitalized with exhaustion, he had to cancel all his remaining tour dates with regret. 

Al Jarreau, like all who has contributed so much to our lives, will be missed greatly. His dash made all the difference in the world to me, and i am truly grateful for his contribution to the musical community at large. 

RIP Mar 12, 1940 – Feb 12, 2017
