Bill Withers

Legendary soul singer of the ’70s Bill Withers was another of the many stars who passed away this year, leaving behind an immense legacy. His timeless hits like “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Just The Two Of Us” and “Lovely Day” have been staples for generations of families and households. One of his most popular hits, 1972’s “Lean On Me,” had a resurgence of popularity this year in association to the coronavirus pandemic and the support of healthcare workers.

As reported by his family, the singer-songwriter died in March due to heart complications and was 81 at the time of his passing. Although he stopped recording in the mid-80s, the warm values of togetherness and compassion in his music will continue to resonate.
