Most SoulTrackers will remember the great hit "One Step Closer" and its singer, Gavin Christopher. (Read our biography of Gavin) But what you may not know is that Gavin is facing some serious health issues this holiday season, and David at Fullasoul.com is setting up a fund to help. Here is David's note:

Gavin Christopher has been writing, producing and singing songs that soul music fans worldwide have come to know and love for almost 40 years. The man has worked with the likes of Chaka Khan, Curtis Mayfield, Herbie Hancock, Jeff Lorber, Sheila E. and even a young Mariah Carey. In 2013, he was featured on one of Fullasoul Radio's biggest hits of the year...James Day's "Considered Delivered" (which also featured vocalist Audrey Wheeler). But the high of having another hit song out was shortly-lived, as Gavin was forced into the hospital this past September with congestive heart failure.

Twelve days and two procedures later, Gavin was able to go home...but the struggle to survive continues. The hospital bill alone would be a big enough burden for most anyone, but Gavin's return to good health is dependent on him staying home and allowing his body to recover. That means for now, this lifelong musician is unable to generate income and make a living for himself. The costs of living, care and medicine, along with a substantial hospital bill and the toll of a cold Chicago winter on the horizon are just too much for this man to face alone. He needs our help.

This month, I'm hoping to rally the Fullasoul family to come together and help Gavin fight through this difficult time. Nobody should have to fight through something like this alone, and we have a very special opportunity to impact the life of someone who's impacted us through music for nearly 40 years. 

Please give what you can. Every little bit helps.
