A Fascinating Look at the Life of Bobby Womack

Bobby Womack, the legendary soul singer whose career spanned seven decades, died June 27 (Friday) at age 70. Womack was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and sang gospel music at a young age, performing with his brothers in The Womack Brothers. Under the influence of gospel and R&B legend Sam Cooke, who signed the group to his personal label, Womack moved into secular music. In the early 1960s his group recorded "It's All Over Now," which was covered by Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones and became the band's first number-one hit.

The following documentary produced by the BBC in 2013 takes an in depth look at Womack's musical career. Womack's hit songs as a solo artist included "Across 110th Street," ''If You Think You're Lonely Now" and "I Wish He Didn't Trust Me So Much." Bobby Womack was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009.
