Despite rumors, Bunny Sigler alive and getting stronger

(February 21, 2017) Despite internet rumors to the contrary, Philadelphia soul legend Walter “Bunny” Sigler is alive and recovering from a recent illness. Lloyd Remick , Bunny’s longtime lawyer, contacted us and assures us that Bunny Sigler is on the road to recovery. “Yes, Bunny is in the hospital and had some tough times but is getting stronger everyday and thanks you for your thoughts and prayers. He is alive and strong, contrary to rumors on the internet.”

Few songwriters have influenced a genre like Bunny Sigler. The Philadelphia native and R&B pioneer is the force behind hits from the 60s and 70s. Instant Funk's "I Got My Mind Made Up," Patti Labelle's "Somebody Loves You Baby," The Whispers' "Bingo," Jackie Moore's "Sweet Charlie Babe," and The O'Jays "Sunshine" all came from the pen of Bunny Sigler.

An integral part of the Philadelphia Sound and Leon Huff & Kenny Gamble's Philadelphia International Records, "Mr. Emotion", as he was called, positioned himself as one of the day's most significant musical players working with artists such as Curtis Mayfield, Carl Carlton, Phyllis Hyman, Lou Rawls, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, and Chaka Khan.

Bunny has also fashioned for himself a solid recording career, most recently releasing the critically acclaimed album Bundino in 2015.

We’ll be praying the continuing recovery of this soul music legend, and look forward to hearing more from him soon.
