Soul Music Deaths

Share this article

    One of our saddest jobs at SoulTracks is to inform SoulTrackers about the deaths of soul music artists. And with so many great soul artists reaching an advanced age, it seems like we're doing this too often.

    For the past few years, we've made a special point to let SoulTrackers know about artists who have passed on and to make sure we pay tribute to their legacies. On this page we provide a list of stories, by year, about artists who have died over the past few years. Click through to each year's link, and you will see pictures and tributes we've written about memorable artists who died during that year.
