Blue-eyed soul singer beloved by hip-hop beat makers and Black audiences dies after years of illness.
Bobby Caldwell, the oft-sampled, blue-eyed soul singer behind the late-’70s hit “What You Won’t Do for Love,” has died at 71.
“Bobby died at home,” Caldwell’s wife Mary tweeted. “I clutched him in my arms as he walked away from us. I’ll be heartbroken for the rest of my life. Thank you for all of your prayers over the years.”
