Grammy Statement on Solomon Burke


GRAMMY®-winning soul singer Solomon Burke was revered as one of music’s greatest vocalists and a pioneer of the genre. A deeply spiritual man, his love and passion for his craft kept him touring and performing to sold-out audiences right up to his final days. Few artists have had careers as long, rich and influential as his, and he leaves a larger-than-life legacy as powerful and soulful as he was. The music industry has lost one of its most distinctive voices, and our deepest sympathies extend to his family, his fans, and all who had the pleasure and privilege of working with him.
