Soul man Gerald Levert had an auspicious childhood as the son of R&B legend Eddie Levert, the lead singer of the O'Jays, and the choice gene pool seemed to kick in at an early age. It ultimately led to him becoming one of the most popular R&B singers in the world as well as a prodigious songwriter. Sadly, at the peak of his career in 2006, Levert's memorable life was cut short by a fatal heart attack.
Gerald was the subject of an episode of "Unsung," the excellent TV One series, and we know SoulTrackers will want to see it.
