Within the past 10 months, there have been so many celebrities who have passed away. It’s always sad when anyone dies but for every one of us, death is a reminder that we are not immortal. As sad as it is, BackBeat R&B wanted to take the time to acknowledge our fallen R&B Artists who bought so much joy and happiness to our lives with songs and music.
As Roy Ayers once said, ” The true beauty of music is that it connects people. It carries a message, and we, the musicians, are the messengers”.
Thank you for sharing your talent and unique voices with the world! May you all R.I.P
