U.S. soul singer Billy Paul dies
    2016-04-27  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    The American soul singer Billy Paul has died at the age of 81.

    He was best known for his 1972 hit “Me and Mrs Jones,” which won a Grammy award and reached number one in the United States.

    A statement on his website said he died on Sunday of a “serious medical condition.” The NME music magazine has reported that this was pancreatic cancer*.

    Paul, who was born as Paul Williams in Philadelphia, helped shape the course of modern R&B music.

    In his youth, he performed alongside music legends including Charlie Parker and Nina Simone.

    His biggest hit “Me and Mrs Jones,” about an extramarital affair*, has been covered by artists including Michael Buble and Hall & Oates.

    In 2003, Paul won a US$500,000 lawsuit for royalties owed for it from 1994 to 2002 by Assorted Music.

    The company said it was an accounting issue and not a case of trying to cheat anyone out of money.

    Paul is survived by his wife, Blanche Williams. (SD-Agencies)
