World in mourning: Bill Withers, singer of ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ and ‘Lean on Me’ Passes Away

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.

“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.
