(CNN) — The raspy, gruff voice behind some of the most soulful songs of the past six decades is now gone.
Legendary soul singer Bobby Womack died Friday, Womack’s publicist said. He was 70.

Keshia Chanté?s not mad that Lifetime chose to cast someone else for the lead role in its upcoming Aaliyah biopic. She didn?t want that part anyway!
As long as there has been buzz about an Aaliyah movie, there?s been a not-so-quiet campaign to get the ?106 & Park? host to play Aaliyah. For a long time, she seemed to be all about it, but she recently stated on Instagram that she opted to back out of the project before Zendaya?s casting was announced.
