Another Soul Crooner has passed! Singer David Peaston Dies at 54
It is with great sadness I report that R&B/gospel singer David Peaston has passed. He was 54. Unfortunately, as of this posting, details of his death are not available. However, according to postings on his Facebook page, he died on Wednesday.
According to his Wikipedia page, Peaston won a Soul Train Music Award in 1990 for Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist. He is mostly known for the singles, “Two Wrongs (Don’t Make it Right)” and “Can I?”, the latter of which was originally recorded by Eddie Kendricks.
In the late 1980s, Peaston, a former schoolteacher, born in St. Louis, won several competitions on the Showtime at the Apollo television show, winning over the audience with a powerful rendition of “God Bless the Child.”
Peaston was diagnosed with diabetes and had his legs amputated, forcing him to use prosthesis. He leaves behind a wife and children! We pray PEACE over their souls at this time.
Here's some tunes from David for your reminiscing Pleasure!
'Everything Must change"
"Stormy Monday" Along with Dianne Reeves
And his signature "God Bless The Child"
R.I.P..What a sad way to begin Black History Month!
