Yesterday at age 80. :^(

Actor, singer, record label owner. He sang the theme for the Joe Oriolo Hercules cartoons, recorded Bob Marley songs when he was not known outside Jamaica, gave The Cowsills their first record deal with JoDa records. His biggest hit was probably I Can See Clearly Now in the early '70s, although classics like Nice Time and Hold Me Tight also received a lot of airplay in North America.

I Can See Clearly Now is a rock-solid classic. Beautiful voice.

I'm also partial to his cover of Stir It Up.

As a child, I loved hearing his voice on the Hercules cartoon theme. 

Listening to I Can See Clearly Now helped me get through my little brother passing from cancer 2 years ago.

RIP
