By now everyone on the globe should know that the Legend Bill Withers has passed on.
And just like all of us who hold love ones dear, Bill will always be remembered for his incredible vocal talent, writing ability and soulful vibes that even today resonates among multiple generations.
The outpour of love has been immense to say the least. From his family, fans, peers, countless music aficionados and DJs who guard their collection of Wither Classics like gatekeepers to the most valuable commodities.
He recorded several major hits, including “Ain’t No Sunshine” (1971), “Grandma’s Hands” (1971), “Use Me” (1972), “Lean on Me” (1972) – The REAL National anthem, “Lovely Day” (1977), and “Just the Two of Us” (1980) “RIP Grover Washington”. Withers won three Grammy Awards and was nominated for six more. His life was the subject of the 2009 documentary film Still Bill. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015.
Yes my friends, we have lost a giant.
So thank you Bill! Thank you for leaving us such a rich Catalogue and inspiring a mass of artist including Legendary D-Nice who dedicated his phenomenal Instagram show to
his legacy. Questlove of the legendary Roots Crew and die hard Bill Withers fan meticulously guided us through a Bill Withers experience that we will never forget!!
We will continue to honor our Entertainment Legends. These are the giants that we aspire to be and these are the shoulders for which we stand. They are strong broad shoulders so all aboard! We will NEVER Forget!
Revisit his music, use it! We can always lean on Bill. Rest In Peace Bill, your spirit will remain.
