Born: March 4, 1944 | Died: June 27, 2014
One of the most enigmatic and talented Soul men of all time, Bobby Womack has been a link from 50s Gospel to 60s Soul to 70s Rock and to some of the greatest musicians in each genre. Born in an extremely devout religious family, he was singing Gospel with his brothers Cecil, Friendly, Harry and Curtis as the Womack Brothers while he was still a child.The talented group was discovered by Gospel/Soul legend Sam Cooke, who renamed them the Valentinos and transformed them into a teenage secular vocal group.
By the early 60s The Valentinos were touring with James Brown and scoring on the R&B charts with their first hit, Lookin' For A Love. Cooke's death in 1964 sent the group on a spiral from which it would never recover....
