Colonel Abrams, the R&B singer who lent his voice to countless house hits over the last several decades, has died aged 67.
The singer's longtime friend Tony Herbet confirmed the news yesterday via a Facebook post.
The singer passed away on Thanksgiving, 24th November 2016, after a long battle with an unnamed illness.
A fundraiser was started in 2015 to amass funds to help support Abrams, with friends saying he was, "very ill, with no permanent place of his own to live and limited financial resources."
The singer was best known for hits including 'Trapped', 'How Soon We Forget' and 'I'm Not Gonna Let You', as well as later collaborations with Omar S.
