OFFICIAL VIDEO: Charles Bradley "Changes"
Portland tonight! Here we go!!
Charles received a bunch more fan letters and wanted to say a few words to everyone... ❤️

NPR Music today posted a video of CB & HE in one of the last live performances of "Lovin' You Baby" x Charles' outro last summer at Pickathon Festival.

Watch the late soul revivalist share his message of universal love on the Pickathon Woods Stage, during his second-to-last performance ever.
The Screaming Eagle of Soul, Charles Bradley, sadly passed away following a battle with cancer in late September. Now he's being honored in the city he called home for the past 20 years with a new mural.

Remembering Charles Bradley.

"In a statement, Gabriel Roth, a founder of Daptone who discovered Mr. Bradley as the James Brown tribute act Black Velvet, said: 'Charles was somehow one of the meekest and strongest people I’ve ever known. His pain was a cry for universal love and humanity.’'"

The singer, once a small-time James Brown impersonator called Black Velvet, was known for his beleaguered rasp and passionate live performances.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Charles Bradley.

Mr. Bradley was truly grateful for all the love he’s received from his fans and we hope his message of love is remembered and carried on. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Dear Fans, Charles Bradley has announced the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates due to illness.

As you may have known, Charles was diagnosed with stomach cancer last fall and, after undergoing treatment and beating it, he returned to the road this past spring. He began to feel run down during recent tour dates and learned that his cancer spread to his liver, though hasn’t returned to his stomach. He will be taking time off to focus on treatment and recovery.

"I love al...l of you out there that made my dreams come true. When I come back, I'll come back strong, with God's love. With God's will, I'll be back soon." - Charles Bradley
