R&B and soul singer Percy Sledge, whose soulful love ballad “When a Man Loves a Woman” soared to the top of the pop and soul charts in 1966, died yesterday in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at the age of 74.

 

 

Sledge had been battling liver cancer, for which he underwent surgery in 2014. His death was confirmed by Artists International Management, which represented the soul singer.

 

 

Known as one of the South’s first soul stars, Sledge first released his legendary hit, “When a Man Loves a Woman”, which reached No. 1 on the pop charts in 1966 and sold more than a million copies, becoming the Atlantic Records label’s first gold record!
