Dubbed the Screaming Eagle of Soul, singer Charles Bradley died of liver cancer on Saturday (September 23) at the age of 68.

A late-in-life success story, Bradley released his debut album No Time for Dreaming in 2011 at the age of 62. He also recorded two more albums, Victim of Love (2013) and Changes (2016).

Bradley made a pair of Greater Nippertown concert appearances with his band the Extraordinaires this summer – at the Empire State Plaza in July and the Huichica East festival in August – before cutting short his tour earlier this month.
