On Monday, March 30, 2020, the music world lost a huge star.

Throughout his life, award-winning hits such as "Lovely Day", "Ain't No Sunshine", and "Just the Two of Us" provided millions of comfort, while "Lean on Me" featured in & # 39; a coronavirus pandemic, with everyone, from recording artists to healthcare professionals who get power from their inspirational message. He was 81 when he passed away due to heart complications.

Born William Harrison Withers Jr in 1938, the singer-songwriter faced a hard childhood.

Booker's former campaign rival, Senator Kamala Harris of California, called Withers a legend whose song "Grandma's Hands" reminded her of her own grandmother and other mother figures. During this time, he worked at the Boeing aircraft company making toilet seats in the daytime; at night he recorded his demos.

After a turbulent time at Sussex Records, Withers signed with Columbia Records and continued to have successes, including the optimistic ode to positivity, lovely day. While at Columbia Records Withers released three albums in three years, followed by a seven-year gap between Bout Love (1978) and Watching You Watching Me (1985). His song "Ain't No Sunshine" won him a Grammy for Best Rhythm and Blues Song. His songs have been included throughout a number of main openings.

But his legacy continued to grow well after he left the industry, with many artists, including Mick Jagger, Aretha Franklin and Paul McCartney, covering his songs.

In 2015, Bill Withers was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Withers was married to Denise Nicholas from January 1973 to 1974. Withers moved to Los Angeles in 1967 to pursue a career in music. Lenny Kravitz is just one of the many people to say something about Withers online. He is survived by his wife Marcia Johnson and their two children.
