Sad News Today.......💧 Charles Bradley ........ Rest In Heaven ..... His Soul Is Still Here .....🙏
Charles Edward Bradley (November 5, 1948 – September 23, 2017) was an American funk/soul/R&B singer, signed to the Daptone Records label under the Dunham Records division. His performances and recording style were consistent with Daptone's revivalist approach, celebrating the feel of funk and soul music from the 1960s and 1970s. One review said he "echoes the evocative delivery of Otis Redding". Bradley was raised by his maternal grandmother in Gainesville, Florida until the age of eight when his mother, who had abandoned him at eight months of age, took him to live with her in Brooklyn, New York.
In 1962, his sister took him to the Apollo Theater to see James Brown perform. Bradley was so inspired by the performance that he began to practice mimicking Brown's style of singing and stage mannerisms at home.
When he was fourteen, Bradley ran away from home to escape poor living conditions—his bedroom was in a basement with a sand floor—and lived on the streets during the day and slept nights in subway cars for two years. Later, he enlisted in Job Corps which eventually led him to Bar Harbor, Maine to train as a chef. A co-worker told him he looked like James Brown and asked if he could sing; he was at first shy but then admitted that he could. He overcame his stage fright (when a crew member pushed him through the curtains onto the stage) and performed five or six times with a band. His bandmates were later drafted into the Vietnam War, and the act never re-formed.
Bradley worked in Maine as a cook for ten years, and then decided to head west, hitchhiking across the country. He lived in upstate New York, Seattle, Canada and Alaska before settling in California in 1977. There, Bradley worked odd jobs and played small shows for 20 years.

Le 1er avril 1965, à l'occasion de l'inauguration du restaurant Blatzheim à l'Europa-Center de Berlin-Ouest, elle rencontre l'acteur et metteur en scène de théâtre de boulevard berlinois Harry Meyen, d'origine juive que lui présente sa mère,, Magda Schneider. C'est un homme cultivé, un intellectuel, un homme de théâtre, mûr - il a 14 ans de plus qu'elle - il est distingué et porte beau ! Déporté par les nazis à 19 ans parce qu'il était juif, c'est un rescapé des camps de concentration ! Je pense que Romy trouve en lui plusieurs choses : une figure paternelle qu'elle recherchera toute sa vie, un intellectuel brillant - en somme, une facette que n'avait pas Delon - et une manière de racheter la faute de sa mère qui avait plus que "sympathisé" avec le "IIIème Reich" ce qui hantera Romy à jamais marquée au fer par le sceau de la culpabilité ...
Harry Meyen est marié lorsqu'il rencontre Romy. Amoureux, il divorce de son épouse. Romy et Harry peuvent donc se marier. La cérémonie aura lieu le 15 juillet 1966 à Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat - Romy est déjà enceinte de cinq mois - et ils s'installent à Berlin-Grünewald. #romy#romyschneider#romyforever#icone#legende#muse#actrice#harrymeyen#cinema#cinemafrancais#photographie#1965#1966
