BeatSessions 01|24|10 (Teddy Pendergrass Tribute)

Teddy Pendergrass (3/26/50 – 1/13/10)

He gave us soul classics like “Turn Off The Lights”, “Close The Door”, “Love TKO” and countless others – not to mention the songs he did while he was part of Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes. In 1982, he was involved in a automobile accident which he became paralyzed from the waste down. And since then, he and his foundation have been strong advocates for those with spinal cord injuries. Late 2009 he underwent colon cancer surgery, but recovery from the surgery was too much as he died on Jan 13th at the age of 59. While he died only at 59, his music lives on. RIP Teddy.
