    When a Man Loves a Woman will be listened to and enjoyed by millions of people for many years to come, that alone is quite a legacy. I am not all that familiar with the rest of his work, but I am going to head over to spotify to check it out. RIP.

    Glad I got to see him perform a few years ago here. Although by then his best years were behind him, he was still quite the showman. His joy was evident.

    R.I.P. Mr. Sledge.

    I was so fortunate to see him perform a few times, the last time I saw him perform was at the new Orleans jazz and heritage festival a few 25/years ago,

    Thank you for everything Mr. Sledge, thank you

    I played with him a few times. He didn't tour with a band much. He usually used selected locals. It was a blast. Take some time to get to know his other work.
