Tributes are pouring in for soul artist Charles Bradley.
The singer found fame last in life, spotted by Daptone Records in 2002 following a life spent largely on the sidelines.
It was this background that seemed to imbue the soul artist's work with such humanity - a warm, tender spirit, he seemed to cherish each moment.
Sadly passing away yesterday (September 24th), Charles Bradley's life and work sparked a wave of tributes.
