Singer-songwriter Bill Withers, the soulful singer behind classic hits “Lean On Me,” “Ain’t No Sunshine” and “Lovely Day,” has passed away earlier this week, Monday 20th at age 81.
“We are devastated by the loss of our beloved, devoted husband and father. A solitary man with a heart driven to connect to the world at large, with his poetry and music, he spoke honestly to people and connected them to each other,” the family statement said.
Lovely Day by Bill Withers is one of those songs that makes it almost impossible to be in a bad mood. A great one to have in the rotation right now during these tough times. RIP to a legendary singer-songwriter! pic.twitter.com/2ZMi7etx2u

“As private a life as he lived close to intimate family and friends, his music forever belongs to the world. In this difficult time, we pray his music offers comfort and entertainment as fans hold tight to loved ones.”
Rest in peace.
