Famous crooner Percy Sledge passed away earlier this week and while younger generations may not be familiar with him, his songs will live on forever. Percy Sledge was popular in the 1960s and his song "When a Man Loves a Woman" became one of the most recognized loved ballads. That songs is what made Percy a hit and because of it he and his legacy will live on.
The song is one of the greatest love songs written. There may be remakes of it,but,Percy Sledge sings it like no one else. It is very meaningful and has alot of feeling the way he performs it. It has been out a long time and is still played,it is not going to stop being played.
Percy Sledge is a great musician who will be remembered for a long time to come. When a Man Loves a Woman is a classic song that people of all generations listen to. I think that people will be singing and listening to his music for a long time after this death.
There is no doubt Percy Sledge will be remembered after his death. Even though the song "When a Man Loves a Woman" is his only real blockbuster hit, it is enough to have him go down in history as one of the great simple love song performers of all time.
