Soul Music Deaths in 2017

One of our saddest jobs at SoulTracks is to inform SoulTrackers about the deaths of soul music artists.  

We feel it is part of our mission to pay tribute to the legacies of thest all time greats. On this page we provide a list of those artists who have died during 2017, and a link to our tributes to them. They are shown in the order of the date we reported on their deaths during the year. Each artist's name or picture is a link to our written tribute to him or her.

Rest in Peace, friends.
